District C is a recipient of the Raleigh Impact Partners grant

We are proud to be one of five first-round recipients of the Raleigh Impact Partners Grant administered by the city’s office of economic development. With this funding we will recruit 84 new business partners — 50 with underrepresented founders or leaders — to provide real problems for our students’ work. Through these partnerships, the next generation of talent will have an opportunity to see themselves -- regardless of race, gender, background, or geography -- in the diverse entrepreneurs that currently make up Raleigh’s innovation community.

A District C student squad — Cierra Redden (Hillside HS), Lauren Carter (Ravenscroft), Leo Kaiser-Potter (Riverside HS), and Luke Johnson (Cary Academy) — met with the Raleigh transportation team to propose a mobility-as-a-service concept for the city of Raleigh. Real solutions to real transportation challenges. A quote from Michael Moore, Director of Transportation: “You all really understand the transportation challenges we are facing.” Way to go team! And thanks for inviting us, City of Raleigh!
