Therefore our goal is to capture the attention, earn the trust, and empower the minds of our at-risk youth offering experiential, progressive, thought-provoking and life-engaging opportunities where we will all be encouraged to: respect, inspire, think, debate, act, challenge, protect, learn, direct, participate, create, understand, choose, produce, recycle, publish, edit, solve, practice, rebuild, volunteer, present, provide, care, grow, believe, and become.
