Our approach

Life Skills Workshops

These programs are essential for young people to feel fulfillment and contribute to society while allowing them the opportunity to learn more about themselves.  Our life skills workshops include personal and professional development, self-motivation, financial literacy and one-on-one mentorship.

Financial Literacy:  The objective of this workshop is to provide at-risk youth the skills and knowledge to make informed decisions about managing money which includes understanding credit and debt, saving, investing and tax preparation.

 Our mentorship program allows for our youth to connect with someone that can guide them with their personal and professional development while showing compassion and empathy to their day-to-day struggles.
