Our Impact

The Mecklenburg GAL Foundation believes that children in foster care deserve to have positive, fulfilling experiences, and these experiences are an investment in their future. When a child is taken from their home, their life is thrown into upheaval and unpredictability. They might move between relatives' houses, undergo numerous foster placements, change schools often, interact with different case managers, and work with several attorneys throughout the proceedings. This continual disruption causes considerable stress and instability for the child. In this tumultuous period, it is vital to prioritize establishing a sense of normalcy to reduce anxiety and bolster their self-assurance. Our Beyond the Classroom Program intervenes to fill these voids, ensuring that the children we advocate for can experience the safe, healthy, and joyful childhood they rightfully deserve.

Beyond the Classroom and GAL Support

Our Beyond the Classroom Program provides enrichment grants within Mecklenburg County that provide unique, educational and positive experiences. Some examples of our Beyond the Classroom grants include birthday parties, drivers education courses, swim lessons, prom suits/dresses, sports fees and equipment, beach trips, music lessons, and more. We empower youth to see the world outside of their classrooms and neighborhoods, grow hope for their future, and give them confidence to achieve their goals.
