We are striving to impact our young people positively. Our mission is to advocate for and empowers youth by helping them to become positive role models and leaders in their community.
In 2021 a troubled teen faced behavioral, emotional, or learning problems beyond everyday teenage issues. For example, they may repeatedly practice at-risk behaviors such as violence, skipping school, drinking, drug use, sex, self-harming, and other criminal acts. In addition, they may exhibit symptoms of mental health problems like depression, anxiety, or eating disorders. While any negative behavior repeated over and over can be a sign of underlying trouble.
Our vision is to decrease community violence and provide a safe environment for young people to challenge themselves. We will achieve this with an emphasis on education, mentoring and referral programs, and a confidence-coaching curriculum. Striving to impact our young people positively, we advocate for and empower youth by helping them to become positive role models and leaders in their community.
