What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

PROGRAM 1

The Kids In Need (K.I.N.) Mentoring Umbrella Program is the umbrella that engulfs the many sub-programs. Beginning in May through December The K.I.N. Mentoring programs are a fun filled way for at-risk youth and their families to come together with mentoring adults and learn valuable life lessons. The mentoring program is designed to link working and retired professionals with underprivileged youth.
PROGRAM 2

The Garden Of Life program entails bringing our inner-city underprivileged youth together, to start and nurture community gardens of beautiful flowers, shrubbery, plants and vegetables. This fun and relaxing activity is for the kids as well as their parents and both will reap the benefits of new relationships, having responsibility, and gaining knowledge of healthy eating habits.
PROGRAM 3

May/December Philanthropy and Giving Back program, the effort or inclination to increase the well-being of mankind, as by charitable aid or donations. This program is designed to educate underprivileged youth on the importance of volunteerism and philanthropy. It encourages them to give back to their communities, build up their communities through charity and general love of mankind.
