Assistance League of Charlotte Community Scholarships
Stratford Richardson Y summer camps – Summer 2022, Assistance League of Charlotte is funding 30 camp scholarships ($314 per student for 2 weeks of camp) for children to attend age-appropriate enrichment activities in indoor and outdoor settings, designed to keep kids active, engaged and having fun. Swim camp, sports camp and teen camp, in addition to regular day camps are being offered. Included this year in camp is social and emotional learning, since so many children are struggling with mental health issues. Camp also includes a reading/literacy component.
Assistance League of Charlotte is currently funding a $7,400 community scholarship for Pebbles, in Class #71 at the Community Culinary School of Charlotte.
Pebbles is from Kansas City, Missouri, and she has five kids, ranging from 13 years old to 28 years old. She moved to Charlotte two years ago looking for a change in pace of life and for more greenery. She currently works at the Charlotte Airport driving the shuttle. She is a people person and loves all the encounters she gets to have at the airport.
Pebbles has always been cooking – cooking for churches, social functions, and the neighborhood. She loves making ox tails, rice, and beans. When a housing advocate told her about CCSC, she was very excited about it. Since Day 1 of meeting Pam, CCSC’s Student Counselor, Pebbles has felt at home. She’s excited to get up in the morning and learn something brand new every day.
Pebbles has already obtained an LLC in NC, so after she graduates, she would like to start with a smoker, and then open her own food truck. She is ecstatic to be attending CCSC, and she is looking forward to all her new endeavors, experiences, and adventures.

Our outreach programs make it possible for students of all backgrounds to access the transformative power of arts education. For more than 20 years, the ArtsReach program has provided free music and visual art programming to thousands of children through local community sites at absolutely no cost to the students or program sites.
