Strategic Priority: Our Outcomes are:

  1. Support 1,000 students of color with socio-emotional youth development to support safety, equity, and stop bullies and violence.
  2. Build healthy violent/conflict-free environments addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion for safer school climates.
  3. Provide youth with leadership, financial literacy and volunteer opportunities that focus on addressing core youth issues that affect them being successful in school.

Youth reported that they are positively impacted in our program based on their need to:

  • Feel like they have caring adults working with them
  • Feel like their voice is being heard
  • Feel like they are prepared to deal with conflict and challenging situations in their life
  • Feel like they are connected to opportunities to help them thrive after high school
