Playing for Others is a non-profit in Charlotte that cultivates the next generation of innovative leaders, philanthropists and compassionate human beings. Through programming in personal development, leadership training, service and the arts, teens learn self-awareness, self-motivation and self-confidence.Each season, PFO brings together a group of teens from in and around Charlotte who are diverse in almost every way imaginable. What unites these teens is that they are willing and excited to answer the questions, “Who am I?” and “How will I give of that?”
