Compass Youth Center is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2009 with the vision of creating an education-to-career platform for all youth. Our focus is on underserved and underrepresented students in grades K-12. We accomplish this by utilizing project-based and experiential learning experiences to reduce and eliminate the disparities and inequalities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math).
Compass provides educational opportunities and services designed to empower and engage our youth. Our central focus hinges upon the creation and successful delivery of quality socioeconomic and community-based programs. Intending to assist our at-risk population, we also aim to combat the school-to-prison pipeline and promote personal and professional development for all. Our vision is to provide pathways out of poverty, which leads to improved self-awareness, more robust workforce/economic development, healthier living, and improved relations between communities, businesses, local leaders, and government agencies. Compass has served students throughout 11 N.C. counties and is helping to expand their knowledge, passion, and development for robotics. We invite you to look at one of our many achievements, including BasketBotz: https://compassyouthcenter.org/basketbotz/.
This year, we seek to raise money through community sponsors’ benevolence to support students in grades 6-12 participating in BasketBotz. Our goal is to expand our programs and engagement throughout N.C. We invite you to consider being one of our corporate sponsors with a monetary donation to Compass Youth Center. By making a donation or becoming one of our monthly sponsors, you will support disadvantaged youth participating in BasketBotz and help offset costs to build the Botz and compete throughout the state.
Donations and sponsorships are tax-deductible (Tax ID#: 80-0468445). Please visit our website (compassyouthcenter.org), or you may make donations by check; payable to Compass Youth Center | P.O. Box 291 | Red Oak, NC 27868

- $25 BRONZE: Framed 5×8 photo of the BasketBotz team
