Mission Statement

Our Mission is to Empower Youth to Pursue their Potential Academically, Relationally, and Spiritually.

Description

Each school day, students have an opportunity to build their skills and be exposed to new concepts while enjoying time with their peers and community. Our daily program includes a set hour for homework completion where we make sure to have staff and volunteers on hand to help students with any questions, essays or projects they may have. In addition, we provide a time with carefully designed hour-long activities that engage students with new skills that may become passions or potential careers. These opportunities enhance the time students have for much social space and recreation, which give staff and volunteers the opportunity to form trusted and impacting relationships with each of the students who come through our doors.

Volunteers are the critical piece that allows our students to pursue their potential. Your unique experiences, talents + personality unlock our students in ways no one else can. It is only with the involvement of volunteers that our students receive the individual mentoring that changes their lives or the academic support that makes success in school a possibility. We are always looking for new volunteers to join our community and impact youth!
