Every year ASC makes investments in hundreds of cultural institutions, cultural programs and individual artists. Together these investments help ASC shape a vibrant cultural life for all.
Part of that vision for Charlotte and Mecklenburg County is strengthening educational offerings to students in our community. And so, this fiscal year ASC awarded, among many others, 100 Black Men of Charlotte a $4,000 cultural project grant to implement a robotics program. The STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) focused initiative was tied together with the organization’s 20-year-old mentoring program and brings the program to more than 50 African-American mentees, with an eye to future expansion.
100 Black Men of Charlotte invited us to check out the program. See your ASC dollars at work in the community below.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHKnQoMYsJs&w=560&h=315]
