Organization Information

Mission Statement

We provide the services our children need to level the playing field while empowering them and their immigrant families through athletic play, education, dance and song. We embrace the many languages of our community while building solid grounds where their play will become the work that changes the world.

Description

We promote a healthy lifestyle and positive decision-making through education, physical and mental health. We provide youth participants with one-on-one and small group mentoring with caring, safe, and positive adult mentors. We engage youth in programming that fosters growth in leadership and relationship-building skills. We encourage and support academic success through tutoring, self-discovery, goal setting and college/career exploration while ensuring all participants and families find a home within our organization.
