How You Can Help Students Succeed During the Pandemic

As the pandemic continues, parents and caregivers are looking for assistance with their children’s virtual learning. Many families are struggling to keep their kids engaged in online classes, or are having trouble connecting to the internet. Metrolina churches are stepping up to fill in the learning gaps. Here’s how you can help meet the needs of students in our area.

FBC Charlotte Virtual Learning Center

First Baptist Charlotte is now offering assistance to parents in difficult situations through a new Virtual Learning Center. If you find yourself struggling to balance work and schooling, FBC CLT is offering an affordable option for families.

The VLC will give students a safe place with access to Wi-Fi, educational support, and childcare for students in Kindergarten all the way through high school. Students will continue their virtual schooling during the day and have access to alternative extracurricular activities in the afternoon.

FBC Charlotte is also asking for volunteers to assist in this ministry. As demand grows, the need for volunteers grows. You can email for more information about how you can help the Virtual Learning Center at FBC Charlotte.
