What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Success Centers' mission is to empower the community through education, employment and art, so marginalized community members may develop a positive self-image as well as a sense of hope and purpose for their future. Of the disconnected Youth see commenets aboveI have proofed this before. Why does it keep coming back? and marginalized community members we serve annually, over 95 percent are low-income and 87 percent are people of color, with the majority being African American and Latinx/Hispanic (46 percent and 20 percent respectively). Many of the YOUTH we serve live in single-parent or cohabitated houses, endure undiagnosed mental health and learning disabilities, and cope with severe life trauma. Roughly one in three are foster youth.
