Do The Right Thing-Charlotte-Mecklenburg is a non-profit agency dedicated to recognizing, celebrating and rewarding youth, who, in the face of overwhelming odds, exhibit character and integrity.
The Charlotte Fire Department, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Police, and the Mecklenburg County Sheriffs Office partner to sponsor the program.
Together, with our community sponsors, CPI Security Systems, the Charlotte Fire Department Credit Union, and the Charlotte International Auto Show, we hope to achieve the highest level of excellence for the youth in our community by reaching common goals set forth in our mission statement.
We want to…
- Reinforce socially desirable behavior among our youth.
- Demonstrate that “good kids” are newsworthy kids.
- Foster positive relationships between police officers, firefighters, and the young people of Mecklenburg County.
- Enhance community relations between the fire department, the police department, the schools, the sheriffs office and local businesses.
