BOWs Grand Opening & Summer Program 2014

Summer Program at BOWs Meeting Place

Parents, Neighbors and Children Learning Together

Our Summer Program was centered around parents, neighbors and children practicing basic skills: reading, writing and arithmetic.

Learning is fun. We have learned that a simple card game can be fun and also educational. The children in our program built relationships and their parents worked together to make their summer a fun and informative experience.

Our parents and neighbors volunteered daily to make certain there are activities during the program times from 8:30 AM - 1:00 PM.

A wonderful time spent. A wonderful opportunity to get involved in the future of our children.


"So instead of watching TV, we read every night together as a family."

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 excited about serving families during hours schools are closed, holidays, weekends, and summer months. BOWs Meeting Place is the neighborhood meeting place promoting education. Interested parents and their children can plan and participate in educational activities and events sponsored by BOWs Volunteers and community partners. We are also networking resources to help parents learn more about job 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 brighter futures for our children, community, state and nation.
