Founded in 2009 by Educator, Venessa Ceasar, Soaring As Eagles Outreach Ministry is a non-profit organization centered around empowering inner-city youth with Life Skills, Education, and Mentorship. For the past seven years, Soaring As Eagles has been at the forefront of the Wilmington, North Carolina community in assisting low- income youth with everything from afterschool empowerment sessions and back-to-school drives to family-fun days and one-on-one tutoring sessions.
Soaring As Eagles’ latest mission is to bridge the technological gap experienced by inner-city youth and their parents.
To help achieve this goal, Soaring As Eagles is seeking to raise $20,000 by the end of the 2016-2017 school year. This money will allow Soaring As Eagles to purchase a school bus that will be converted into a mobile computer lab. The lab will go deep into the community and provide a safe, state-of-the-art digital environment for students and their parents to learn basic computer skills, do homework, and even fill out job applications online. This computer lab will be a powerful source in the lives of the next generation of leaders!
One of our annual events is “Family Fun Day. This event offers the opportunity for the community to learn more about the services that Soaring As Eagles have to offer. There will also be a variety of vendors on site that are pertinent to our community. This wholesome environment includes live entertainment, food, games, prizes, and plenty of fun for the whole family. It will be held at Martin Luther King Center by the shelter on Ann Street on Saturday, June 4, 2016 from 11:00 AM to 4 PM.
