Mission Statement

Higher Ground Youth Center’s mission is to reach, transform, and elevate students’ academic success and positive identity to build leaders in their community.

We want to see a life-changing youth center that will reach the youth of Tucson and transform them by inspiring leadership, good choices, develop them through their talents and build a positive identity partnered with parents, schools, and community resources to fully maximize every child and youth’s potential in their future.

Description

We have 150 at-risk students coming to our after school Youth Center everyday from K - 8th grade.

Our students are from single/divorced families, low academic achievement homes, low income families, incarcerated parents, high crime community and lacks any youth center within a 5 mile radius. In addition, the schools we serve are on the lower 50% performing schools in Arizona.

We provide academic programming and recreational activities to build our youth and enable them to achieve access in their personal and academic areas.

Would you recommend Higher Ground A Resource Center?

I have tried to reach out to them three times, twice by e-mail and left a voicemail. It's been about three weeks and I still haven't heard from them. It's unfortunate, I was really hoping to get involved with this organization!
