Many young people feel disempowered with little opportunity to impact change in society. Community service is something that is engaged in infrequently or is seen as an obligation for school credit or as a resume builder. The unique gifts & talents of youth are often undervalued and overlooked as tools for leadership development and social change. Many urban youth do not engage in physical activity, and those that do saw themselves as "just a dance or sports team" prior to our programs.


Our programs empower and inspire young artists/athletes to become social innovators who use their talents towards making a positive change in their communities. Youth stay physically active and have the support of adult mentors along the way.

Long-Term Impact

We have already reached thousands of youth through an online presence, community service projects, workshops, and prosocial campaigns. This is a movement and we hope to replicate it nationally and globally in the future!
