Our Common Purpose
We operate after-school programs where students spend over 300 hours of mentorship coordinated by volunteers weekly. We accomplish this by facilitating football and cheer programs. Our purpose is to ensure comprehensive development of students in our community. Our focus is the academic, health, and physical wellness, spiritual/mental and social development of all students.
