Charleston Hope is an organization in Charleston which helps to support programs in the Lowcountry’s lowest-resourced Title 1 schools to close the achievement and opportunity gap for low-income students. Through the Classroom Mentorship Program, low achieving students work with mentors to catch up, and high achieving students work with mentors to be challenged.
