In its launch year, MBK-CLT MECK will serve 5th and 8th graders from the 28208 West Charlotte zip code. Informed by the Leading on Opportunity data, this is the most challenged neighborhood in the county. And according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools data, 6th and 8th grades are the two most important years to build a bridge that allows young boys to reach not just high school graduation, but to dream of entering the workforce and pursuing career goals. The program will serve one-third boys with a GPA below 2.0; one-third with GPAs 2.0 – 3.0; and one-third with a GPA above 3.0.
