To prepare youth for tomorrow's challenges by exposing them to and providing them with access to people, places, occupations and skills that may not otherwise be in their normal orbit.
We were established in 2002 with an emphasis on Performance Arts as a means of addressing health issues and choices that youth face as they transition to adulthood. We addressed HIV, AIDS, other STDs, Diabetes, Hypertension, Diet and Exercise, Date Rape, Incest, Teen Pregnancy, Teen Violence and others. The youth would choose the topic, complete research on the topic, interact with an expert in the field and create a Performance Arts piece that is eventually presented to the community, schools, school workers, conferences and other venues.
The work product of the group includes a pay called "Drive-Thru Justice.
We have been dormant for a few years and we are returning with the intent of collaborating with other agencies to provide mentoring through scouting. Using scouting as a platform, we will expose youth to camping, urban farming, social skills, STEAM, Entrepreneurship, Service Learning Projects and Leadership Development.
