Succeeding in spite of the obstacles -      A place where teens can actualize their highest potential
Our vision is a world in which every child knows their worth,
then holds that power to create opportunity for themselves
and future generations.

The clock is ticking . . .
 
Will you help us raise
$4,000 in just two weeks?

We have our largest group of at-risk teens yet for this years summer camp – and we need your help to support them.

Stepping up and taking control of their lives . . . learning to trust . . . implementing teamwork . . . developing healthy eating habits . . . living with purpose and developing a brighter future . . .
 
These are just some of the things these kids will develop at this year’s summer camp – skills that will get them out of gang-filled neighborhoods and give them a future full of hope.
 
They’re committed to creating a brighter future – please show them you believe in them . . .

Thank you for your generosity and support!
Thank you in advance for your support!



A Poem from a recent graduate
Okay, so this right here's for AYM
Thought the workshop would be so lame,
thought wrong, actually made me change.
I see things different now,
used to make myself miserable,
used to think I was invisible,
but now I look back
on when I used to call myself fat,
used to pull my hair and scream.
Thought there was no one there for me,
tried to take my life away,
not realizing I'd leave loved ones in pain,
not realizing this ain't no game.
You only live once,
you've got to live it up,
never give up you may succeed.
Live every moment,
laugh every day,
'cause you don't know when you're goin'
So try to earn each day!
Female - Age 13

We had a very successful trip to Malawi, Africa this summer! Our team of  7 partnered with the non profit buildOn and worked alongside villagers to build them a school. Thank you to all who supported us in getting there!
This is a picture of the completed school in the village of Kauma, Malawi!
