Our core VALUES

L.I.F.E.

LOVE::

Providing the community a safe haven filled with mentors, artists, and educators who operate solely out of love to inspire our youth, introduce them to a world with endless opportunities, and passionately guide them towards their dreams. We will be love personified.

INTEGRITY:: 

Helping our youth lay the foundation for their lives; entering into the world with an undeniable focus, maintaining their high standards, understanding and heeding to their moral values, and unable to be easily beset. Their integrity will transcend into their leadership.

FAITH::

Instilling an unshakeable faith whereby our youth will create positive change in their lives, solidify a powerful future that impacts the lives of others, and leave with a better understanding of who they are, where they are going in life, and more importantly how to get there.

EDUCATION::

Youth are introduced to a cultural worldview and a broader perspective on what impact they want to leave in the world. We educate them on life skills, vigorously prepare them for higher education and entrepreneurship, promote the reduction of the high school dropout and prostitution rates, and guide them through their pursuit of an empowered life.
