Ralph Carter Founder of WE ARE LINDEN


I created WE ARE LINDEN to help strives to change the lives of individuals, families & communities through positive programs, events, and helpful resources.

With over a decade of working with youth, pre-school to high school, working in fields of juvenile detention, special education, and at-risk youth. My determination and motivation have driven my passion to bring back positive programs and events geared toward youth and families to build strong relationships.


Born and raised in the South Linden neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio on December 30, 1985. I witnessed the love for family and community from my mother Willow Mitchell. She instilled the importance of having pride in myself and my community. She taught me the love of God and culture and how I should always remain true to my foundation. I graduated from Gladstone Elementary School and was a star football athlete, the only 4-year letterman at Northland High School Class of 2005. I am a proud Alumni of a Historically Black College “Central State University” and a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated Delta Xi Chapter.


I serve as a mentor to help high students create a plan to graduate and prepare them for college/workforce. My love for family and community is why I strive to be a great example for my children Ralph Jr., Riley, and Raegan, as well as a strong and supportive husband to my beautiful wife Alexis.
