Our History & Accomplishments

Since 2008, our mission has been to empower and enrich the lives of at-risk youth, teens and young adults.  We do this through our various outreach components designed to create career awareness in the STEM and I.T. fields.  We provide professional and character development, training and certifications that will develop more productive citizens for society.

Our goal is to decrease the educational inequity and social disparities that exist in the communities we serve.  These activities instill change in the entire family unit.  Our efforts will increase financial stability, create a more diverse and marketable workforce.

Thereby, fulfilling our motto:  “Rebuilding & Restoring Communities & Families”
