Since 2009, McCarty and a team of VT students developed and implemented Actively Caring for People programs for elementary, middle and high school students while earning undergraduate and graduate degrees at Virginia Tech.  In 2014, McCarty co-founded the Cor Foundation to continue developing, implementing and evaluating these programs. After years of development and evaluation, the Cor Foundation has released an improved Actively Caring program for middle school, high school and college student Fellows.
