What do we want to see happen?

  • Lives changed. Students challenged to learn, live, and lead.

  • Mentoring-Adults investing in the lives of students.

  • Create an environment where students want to come.

  • Assist students in seeing their own value and potential.

We want to work with children and youth in urban neighborhoods where the challenges of daily life serverely affect their ability to find purpose. We develop programs where kids can feel safe, be engaged, build healthy relationships, gain academic confidence, and develop the life skills they need to move (confidently) toward a better future.
