The short answer is that we work with youth and adults that work with youth. Since 1997, we have worked to promote character, service, education and culture for young girls in urban populations. Over time, we diversified our program to include all young people (girls and boys and youth of all backgrounds) ensuring that every child is equipped with the knowledge and tools in life to succeed.
We provide leadership training for groups of all sizes. We work with community partners in health wellness, and prevention across the state, and we host several signature events whereby young people can play an active role in the development, and implementation of the programs.
We're unique in that we allow our youth to provide direction for our overall programming. We have a governing advisory board, made of community members of various backgrounds that care about youth. We have three youth leadership boards, and we have a governing board of former youth participants of our program. We're coming into our own and bridging gaps that exist for our young people today, so those gaps won't exist in the future. We do that by BUILDING UP our youth members by sharing what we believe are four fundamental components that lead to success. And that is by understanding the importance of character, service to the community, education for all, and culture awareness.
