Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our youth face many disadvantages, some no faults of their own. In most situations, there are no resources being provided to impact recidivism rates, close gaps, or even model for the youth; that which is necessary for successful futures or build confidence levels. Our youth must gain awareness of: diversity, community, and innovation. They must be provided a toolbox to cope with those ailments that could prove to be consequential.
