Mission Statement

The mission of Third Gear Youth Leadership Organization AfterSchool Program is to serve as a "safe haven" for at risk kids. 3rd Gear motivate young adults, ages 13-23, especially the economically poor who are "at risk", to mature into responsible, productive adults through self-direction. To empower and "wake-up those who sleep in the grave of ignorance". To teach them to fight for better schools, communities and a "better day"! Our youth are screaming for help and no one is listening to them. 3rd Gear will give the voice to the un-heard. Our priority is to develop leaders from the communities. .
