2016 Back-to-School Bash: College Style

The Dr. L.C. Carter Foundation's VP, Angela Carter and her company AFC Power Strategy Group held the first of these events with the hopes of one day bringing it to a nonprofit that shared her passion to attract, support and encourage degree seeking women and men from the community. AFC Power Strategy Group hosted the first of these events with the 2016 back-to-school event through a partnership with University of St. Thomas Career Services.

We are very pleased to bring this event into the Dr. L.C. Carter Foundation and make it a wide reaching annual tradition. With your support, together we can make this dream a reality.
