Our mission is to support at-risk children as well as children in the community by providing them with quality services to foster their growth as individuals. We plan on doing so by offering enrichment programs based on the children's interests which may include art, sports, music, dance, volunteer opportunities, high school and college prep workshops and many more. Our programs will continue to grow and evolve based on the needs and interests of the children.
The problem and challenge that we are faced with is too many children not being exposed to positive environments. We see children on the street doing things that are not making a positive impact in the community. We also see parents who are not stepping up as much as they should to allow each individual child to strive for their best and strive for success. We want to break those barriers and change them overall.
Our project will allow our children to be hands on with things they do not see on an everyday basis. It will also give the children a clear understanding that their are other children who can relate to different scenarios from one another as well as a team of individuals that are for their upbringing. This will also keep kids off the street and not into gangs, getting pregnant, or drugs and just doing something positive.
The long term effects that the project will have on the community will be more enrichment activities all across the community, positive grades, more children graduating, less drop outs, and building that confidence in each and every child.
