Help Us Make A Difference in Our Community!


Join Our Cause

A Child’s Place served 2,002 homeless students in 15 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools during the 2018 school year.

Have a positive impact on these students by volunteering as a classroom assistant, lunch buddy, or tutor.

Help boost a child’s academic success, self-esteem, and achieve their goals and dreams.


Volunteer Opportunities

Become a Lunch Buddy: Lunch buddies come to school once a week (one hour including travel time) to have lunch with your buddy, talk, play games, or read.

Become a Tutor: Tutors assist students for one hour per week with homework, studying, and developing reading and math skills.

Become a Classroom Assistant: Classroom assistants help in an assigned classroom (1-2 hours/week) facilitating classroom activities with the teacher (individual tutoring, small group activities, art projects, or checking papers).
