Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization is hoping to restore and esteem student moral and usher academic achievement for youth stemming from challenging backgrounds.

The strategies we will use to help accomplish our goals include informing the community of the opportunities our organization provides, getting city/government officials involved, and holding fundraisers to help collect funds needed to support our cause.

Our organization's capabilities for meeting our goals are quite high. Our board members are working diligently to promote/market the organization through social media with a strong internet presence. Frequent Hand-outs, Mail-outs/Circulars, and eBlasts are noted to draw in community awareness to aid in accomplishing our goals.

Our organization has held nearly 40 educational youth seminars/workshops in the surrounding community and continued to gain notoriety both locally and nationally over recent years.
