Community of opportunity

Our students, their families, our staff, and our volunteers work together to give students the best opportunities.

A whole lot of fun

Our volunteer opportunities are fun for everyone. You will love the time you spend at Brookstone.

A meaningful impact

Your commitment of time to Brookstone students will make a lasting impact in their lives. It’ll impact yours as well.

Welcome to Brookstone Schools!

Amazing things are happening here due in large part to the more than 250 men and women who invest their time, and ultimately their hearts in our students and teachers. Since our founding in 2001, we’ve known there would be no way to nurture and grow future leaders of Charlotte on our own – we need YOU to come alongside us to encourage and support all that God is cultivating in these students.

If you have completed an application with us, contact volunteer@brookstoneschools.org for more information and login credentials for our live “needs board”.

If you haven’t yet visited Brookstone, we would love to host you for a visit to tell you more about our program and answer any questions you may have. Feel free to email volunteer@brookstoneschools.org at any time. We welcome you to step inside and learn more!

Hear from our students and volunteers.

During my initial visit to Brookstone, I was immediately impressed by the caliber and quality of the students, teachers and staff that I met during my tour. Through volunteering at the school in the Lunch Buddy Program, I feel I have an opportunity to not only help equip my lunch buddy for success in school and beyond but also have a kingdom impact on the next generation of leaders in this city.

Nothing brings me greater joy than helping a child know how loved he/she is. The children’s sweet spirits and love for life invigorate me each time I’m at Brookstone.
