VISION

Everyone should have the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Through this program we will prepare young people for their future by providing leadership experiences for existing and emerging community leaders through communal reinvestment in our youth.

PURPOSE
  • Developing the individual talents, academic and leadership capabilities of each achiever while instilling a greater sense of self-confidence.
  • Exposing achievers to a wide variety of careers and assisting them in developing the skills that are necessary to complete successfully in the market place.
  • Providing constructive recreational, artistic and social opportunities as a means of achieving a well balanced life.
  • Encouraging corporations and businesses to sponsor and/or employ youth in the program as interns and summer replacements.
MISSION

To support, encourage, and equip teens with skills and competencies needed to gain acceptance to and graduate from institutions of higher learning and successful entry into the workforce.
