Mentoring of High School Youth
The Chambers-McCain Foundation has worked closely with the Social Action Committee of Beta Delta Boulé a part of Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity to provide mentoring through two main channels:
Sponsoring various sessions and activities with the Garinger High School student basketball team. We have sponsored impact social events including movies and TopGolf along with in classroom discussions of real life experiences.
Working with students in Young Black Leadership Alliance ("YBLA"). We have partnered with YBLA on various activities including team building, mentoring, career day panel discussions and support of YBLA sanction events.
Johnson C Smith University Partnership
The Foundation has developed a partnering and mentorship program with Johnson C. Smity University "JCSU" students called "Mentors and Internships in Action (MIA). The Program is designed to support incoming JCSU freshman students with one-on-one support from acceptance to graduation. With its sponsoring organization, Beta Delta Boule, CMF works with students on the following:
Provide personal support with life skills and core workplace competencies such as professionalism, work-ethic, oral and written communication skills, and career management.
Internship opportunities are created through the support of Beta Delta Boulé to strategically align with credit-bearing courses.
The Chambers McCain Foundation in cooperation with the Social Action Committee of Beta Delta Boulé is committed to cultivating, achieving, and sustaining the highest quality of life through an improvement in the areas of leadership, economic development, education and social development in the Greater Charlotte Community.The Chambers-McCain Foundation supports two major scholarship programs:
Chambers-McCain Foundation Scholarship
Boulé Scholars Program
Fulfilling an objective of helping disadvantaged youth requires efforts that come in many different ways. The Foundation seeks both direct and indirect ways to support this objective. For example, when the COVID-19 pandemic caused our CMS schools to close, it left a gap in providing meals to at-risk students in the school system. Recognizing that the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina was stepping up to provide those meals, The Chambers-McCain Foundation provided funding that help feed those students that were without alternative sources of these meals.
