We believe that youth of all ages deserve a chance to achieve future success.

We encourage teens in our programs to discover their interests and develop their talents,

in spite of barriers to success for youth coming of age in impoverished or high-crime

neighborhoods. By connecting youth to positive adult role models, by cultivating

their skills and interests, and by creating opportunities for them to shine, we’re

positioning youth for success as healthy adults, strong leaders, and active citizens.
