HOW YOU CAN HELP
On Monday, August 4, 2014 Invest Collegiate Transform, a public charter school, opened its doors to nearly 700 students in grades kindergarten through seventh grade.
Prior to opening, Collegiate Leaders have been busy learning and exploring their new immersive learningscape. The facility was designed for 21st century learning in every way. The layout requires collaboration, unique lesson planning, and innovative strategies and techniques. Each learning community includes large open environments with discovery spaces for science lessons, "think" spaces for smaller groups of children to work together, and impart spaces for student presentations or classroom discussions. The building also has a large space for group presentations, performances and meetings.
INVEST COLLEGIATE is a school with a vision and a view overlooking the beautiful city. This facility will provide a wonderful backdrop to the mission that lives within: "At Invest Collegiate we imagine, we nurture, we value, we engage, we sustain, we transform as we champion opportunities in leadership and learning - embracing greatness, inspiring achievement within a telescopic environment."

FreeMoreWest is excited to support our nonprofit neighbor, Classroom Central. Unfortunately, over half of our region’s students live in need. As they start back to school in the next few weeks, many of these students do not have the necessary school supplies they need to succeed in the classroom. Classroom Central equips students living in poverty to effectively learn by collecting and distributing free school supplies.

Goodwill’s Bold Vision To Address Poverty In Our Region
There has been an increase in poverty levels in our region in recent years. In fact, there are close to 160,000 Mecklenburg residents living in poverty and more than 300,000 in our region living below the poverty line. In addition, according to a Harvard study, it will be extremely hard for those in our state to move out of poverty. Tuesday, Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont, a leader in the workforce development industry in our region, announced its bold vision to change the trajectory of poverty and dependence in our area during a Growing Opportunity Celebration.
