Partnering with the Providence After School Alliance alongside teammate Christine Etzel, Carchio designed and implemented a four-week soccer program for Providence youth. This past summer, Carchio helped welcome the Bears’ Team IMPACT match, Leilani Favala, to the team with a special Draft Day in August.
