Do you know of a Charlotte based teen who fits the statements below?
  • You’re a natural leader or a growing leader looking for opportunities to enhance your leadership skills.
  • You’re a compassionate human being searching for ways to give back to your community.
  • You’re artistically inclined and seeking to use your creativity to change the world.
  • You’re a unique individual searching for a space to connect with your people.
  • You’re looking for a space to belong; an opportunity to be an agent for change; friends who think, feel and act with compassion and deep conviction; and a space to create lifetime memories, open up doors and help you discover who you are at your absolute best!

If you answered yes to any of these statements, you might know a future Playing for Others (PFO) teen!

For the past ten years, Charlotte based nonprofit Playing for Others (PFO) has provided a space for teens to explore and answer the questions, “Who Am I?” and “How will I give of that?” through programming in Personal Development, Service, and the Arts.

We are excited to invite new teens from the greater Charlotte area (rising 8th-12th graders) to apply for admission into PFO.

If you, or a teen that you know, is interested in applying to be in the PFO program, please complete the interest form here—and we will contact you right away. Also, feel free to contact Hannah Hasan at 704-340-3785 or hannahh@playingforothers.org for more information.
