Ahead of our next live #discussCLT event: Navigating Nonprofits, Thursday, October 19 at Lenny Boy Brewing, we wanted to take a look at one nonprofit that's just getting started in Charlotte. So here’s a question: What happens when you have a minister named Canaan Grier, and a rapper/producer named Yung Citizen, and they join forces to help guide West Charlotte High School football players into manhood? This is Ready Citizens, a nonprofit that started just this year. In this episode of the #DiscussCLT podcast, we’ll talk to the pair about how this works—and the future they’re trying to build in Charlotte’s West Side. RSVP for the next live #DiscussCLT event Thursday, October 19 at Lenny Boy Brewing Company on South Tryon Street. The topic is Navigating Nonprofits, and a moderated panel will discuss how local nonprofits can best work together and avoid competition for donor money and volunteer hours. The event is free but you must RSVP at discussclt.com. Get in on the discussion by tweeting us @Charlottemag and using the hashtag #DiscussCLT. Welcome to the #DiscussCLT podcast, a production of Charlotte magazine. The #DiscussCLT podcast is powered by OrthoCarolina.
