Impacting the community
2019 Cabarrus Regional Chamber of Commerce Nonprofit of year Winner!
The Bethel Enrichment Center is a Non-Profit community center with a focus of “Impacting the Community Profoundly”. We are an organization dedicated to providing crisis assistance, educational, recreational, and empowerment opportunities in a safe environment. The Bethel Enrichment Center offers the following programs; Before & After School care, Summer Camp, 10 Countywide State Summer Nutrition sites, 16 area high school College Scholarships, a weekly “Body for God” physical fitness class, Girls Self Esteem Program entitled, “A Look in the Mirror”, as well as facility rentals for your event needs. We look forward to providing services that enhance the lives of our patrons and the community.
Crisis Assistance, Education, Recreation, and Empowerment are the needs of our community that the Bethel Enrichment Center takes pride in tackling on the ground floor. We feel as a Non-Profit that we can make our biggest impact improving these county needs.
Unique growth comes in the means of the Bethel Enrichment Center focusing harder on Education this year and enriching the lives of our children. We created a team that will place emphasis on the needs of 3 schools specifically; A L Brown High School, Shady Brook Elementary, and McKnight Head Start Program. We met with Kannapolis City Schools and they informed us of unmet needs or resources where we could be of assistance to them.
The Bethel Enrichment Center utilized creative thinking when we decided to start an intern program focusing on the skill set our youth are interested in pursuing. We allowed a couple of culinary students to shadow our Kitchen team when it came down to proper meal prep planning, time management, and actual on the job training. We will now provide this same training to our youth utilizing professionals during the Martin Luther King Prayer Breakfast. Students will learn beside actual project managers, kitchen managers, accountants and others professionals regarding the work it takes to put on an event from start to finish.
Financial Adversity is always a part of a non-profit’s mainstream issues. We only operate on the monies gained via youth care and monies donated. We found that a way to overcome adversity and further our mission of empowering individuals is through partnering with and assisting outside programs. “A Look in the Mirror” is a program geared toward assisting girls ages 7-18. The program aims to improve the self- esteem and confidence of others through small group facilitation. They offer an eight-week self-esteem program fixated on inspiring girls to evoke a positive mentality and eliminate a harmful self-image. We have 13 girls currently utilizing the program.
Mark your calendars! We look forward to seeing you at our events.
