Prosper University

Mentoring, teaching, and loving K-5 children from all around central and east Charlotte!

PROSPER U (University) is a structured community-based program thoughtfully designed to mentor local children (grades K-5) with both Biblical & life-skills programming. This free program takes place every Wednesday from 6:30 – 8:15pm and includes tutoring, game based learning, and enrichment.  It aims to enlighten, uplift and inspire in order to create a lasting positive IMPACT! Furthermore, it allows parents to enjoy Wednesday night bible study or have a night off.

Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting Prosper U for the first time:

Registration for Prosper U is the first step to enrolling student scholars. Once volunteers receive an informational sheet for each student from parents and guardians (located at the registration table in the foyer of the Life Center), students are free to begin attending the weekly program. The program starts each week at 6:30pm with a full dinner and ends with pick up at 8:15pm.
