Mission Statement

Success 1st (Success First) encourages youth between the ages of 11 and 22 to acknowledge and address all aspects of their personal health and development. The program focuses on helping youth to develop sound decision-making skills in support of education, dating, leadership, and safety (internet/social/personal). It is structured to engage youth in artistic endeavors, strategic planning and character building activities as a means to discourage at-risk behavior, such as pregnancy, spread of sexually transmitted diseases, and drug or alcohol abuse. The Success 1st program enables youth to be emotionally and physically healthier, demonstrate respect for self, consideration for others, and communicate in a positive way. Success 1st will teach, encourage and strengthen these skills through youth involvement in the creation, development, leadership, and facilitation of programs.

The purpose of Success 1st is to empower youth to overcoming pressures to engage in destructive behaviors such as risks from engaging in sex, violence and drug or alcohol abuse.
