Charting impact

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

At this time we are looking to be able to fully fund our signature programs and have amble participation by the community to take advantage of the grants/awards/scholarships we offer.

We are striving to have more visibility online and in the community on the programs and services we offer.

On our board of directors we have a few members who are actively promoting our events and seeking partnerships with other organizations to promote the organization and its programs and services.

The LIVE ON Walk in 2017 had 100 people on registration and about 60 people showed up to walk. Many people donated for the t-shirts and gifts. We have sponsored three students on an HBCU college tour: Creative Arts College Tour, Augusta, GA; SI HBCU College Tour, Staten Island, NY; Queen Alumnae Chapter of DST HBCU College Tour.
