It takes a village to raise a child in the way he should go so that when he is older he will remember.
Event Committee Chair
I joined Raise a Child because am passionate about volunteering and giving back. My ultimate goal is to play a part in impacting and inspiring our youth through The RACC's curriculum and many events throughout the community. We live in a world that is constantly evolving. Being exposed to a wide range of enrichment programs shouldn’t be a privilege, it should be the norm.

Sasi Vedaiyan grew up in Raleigh, NC and graduated from University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She now works as a Controls Engineer. In her spare time, she enjoys tutoring and mentoring, traveling, and spending time with her dog. Sasi is driven by RACC’s mission to expose youth to the opportunities that are necessary for them to reach their full potential. "Children are our future, and we want to provide them with support while inspiring them to follow their dreams."
Grandma Lena Pryor pretty much does whatever she wants and none of us will tell her otherwise. She's a teacher, cook, and all around caregiver. She plays games, monitors activities, and keep the kids in line. Her sole purpose is to spoil the kids, and make sure they get lots of hugs.
