About Our Organization
After spending years on school campuses in North Charleston, BOWs volunteers started our 10th year opening a location in the heart of the neighborhood. We are starting our sixth year in the Dorchester Terrace neighborhood, an area that is accessible to several neighborhoods served by Title I Funded Public Schools.
We are excited about serving families during hours schools are closed, holidays, weekends, and summer months. It is our desire to be the neighborhood meeting place promoting education and developing relationships between children and adults. Also, a place where interested parents, neighbors, community partners and children can plan and participate in events and activities to nurture learning and building relationships. BOWs serves as a resource center to help parents learn more about education advocacy, jobs, and career opportunities to improve their lives.
Become a Volunteer
Parents and neighbors can work together to help secure the future of children growing up in our communities. BOWs volunteers are citizens who believe a quality education is key in building a brighter future for our children, community, state and nation.
Our Summer Feeding & "Schools Out" Camp Programs will start run mid June until the first Friday in August. There are opportunities for individuals and organizations to volunteer.
