EDUCATE

KNOWLEDGE

In our Neighborhood, Schools and Faith Communities  we help youth and families discover and implement the power of knowledge.

Our Character Curriculum with Social Emotional Learning (SEL) gives students the tools to succeed. 

 

Exposure to healthy life options creates opportunities to build a strong foundation for a healthy future. It takes a vision and purpose, so we take the time to listen, process and advise the youth we work with.

FORMATION 

We inspire, develop and empower young emerging leaders, providing three areas of formation: Expression, Giveback and FaithExperience is one of the best ways we learn responsibility and leadership. Youth need consistent and reliable adults that can be trusted. We provide quality mentors that are supportive and encourage a higher standard.
