Teaming up with the United Way and Carolina Panthers

Partnering with the United Way on Project 1,000

The Center for Adolescent Literacies at UNC Charlotte has partnered with the United Way of Central Carolinas to provide training to tutors, mentors, and readers in the Project 1,000 initiative. Recognizing that students spend just 20% of their time in the classroom and 80% outside the classroom, the United Way understands the role that afterschool and out-of-school efforts play in children’s academic success. Visit the Project 1,000 website for more information about how to get involved.
