Throughout the history of our organization, our main focus has been to increase equitable opportunities for under-represented and low-income youth to have more support within traditional school settings and more access to experiential learning activities. We understand that success in school also means having access to resources that take care of one's basic needs of food, shelter, clothing, health supplies, and school supplies. It was this understanding that led to the growth of our other programs. Nevertheless, education is our first and foremost passion.
