Keep Kids in School


Missed the school bus; stayed up too late overslept; no one got me up; didn't stay at my house last night; no way to get to school; our car broke down; we were out of town; mom got a new job and isn't home in the mornings, angry with the school; angry with the teacher; afraid of a student; don’t understand the work; have something else I would rather be doing; unaddressed medical needs; vacation; just don’t like school; they don’t like me…..

Vision Statement   

Bright Hopes, Inc. working to reduce Charlotte Mecklenburg school absences by 50%

Keep Kids Learning


In order to increase success for community youth we must do more to support parents and youth.  More resources, information and interventions are needed.  We are stronger together.


Bright Hopes supported four schools and or 174 students with headphones as referred by their school.  We also provided snacks and food to students and families as we worked to keep students connected and learning.  Thank you to all those who helped us make this happen.  The four schools we supported: Albemarle road Elementary and Albemarle Middle School, Idlewild road Elementary School and McClintock Middle School and others. 




"Keep Kids Learning" It takes a village!






"A Big Thank You" to our supporters.  We could not do this needed work without you!                                            

Keep Kids Learning

While CMS and our state representatives are planning how to safely educate our youth parents must also be planning.  More than ever before parents must stay connected to their child’s school.  Schools are creating educational resources and material.  Parents must stay connected to their child’s school in order to utilize what is being put in place to keep their youth learning.
