Carolina Studios (learning in disguise) Carolina Studios is a non-profit after school program that is designed to give youth a safe atmosphere for learning computer technologies through the media arts.
In February 2002, Carolina Studios was granted its formal status as a registered 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. Since 2002, Carolina Studios has served to provide a safe after-school environment during the school year, as well as a full-day environment during the summer months. People around town began to take notice of this great program and soon the program eventually attracted Mark Bryan, the lead guitarist and founding member of Hootie and the Blowfish, who later became the Board’s Chairman.
In 2007, Carolina Studios forged a win-win relationship with The Boys and Girls Club whereby it could permanently locate one of its programs in the club’s Mary Street location in downtown Charleston. This relationship turned out to be fantastic for the kids who attend the club’s program. The Carolina Studios program ended up strengthening a solid program that was already in place.
