Support Our Youth and Help Shape Their Future
We are building a network of empowered youth and young adults ages 12- 24 by providing Rites of Passage opportunities through exploration of the Arts, health and wellness, service and technology. We provide academic and spiritual enrichment to equip them to excel in post-secondary education and beyond with strategies for a sustainable successful lifestyle.

Researchers have found that each person develops a cluster of “Individual Protective Factors” that s/he uses most often in times of difficulty. These factors may be humor, spirituality, independence and flexibility. Or service, optimism, perseverance and relationships. In order to build our teens and young adults to a place of self-sufficiency, resiliency/life skills must be taught and applied.
We've been busy, working to improve the lives of our youth through programming such as our Hospitality/Culinary Training, Young HERO Events, Sunday Waffles Life Goals & Action Plan, along with, scholarship opportunities, mentoring, academic & spiritual enrichment workshops!
