OPEN MAY 9, 9AM - MAY 14

Our program graduates take with them a set of skills and attributes that lay a foundation for life-long achievement, as well as awareness that they possess a unique spark to be shared with the world. Learn how mentors impact the lives of the youth in our program by helping them to become self-sufficient and thriving adults. Fund It Now packages offer opportunities to directly support our services at all levels.

Thanks to an Anonymous Donor, all Fund It Now package donations will be matched up to



it takes a village

We have all heard the expression “it takes a village to raise a child,” and that is what we create for youth. We help to build a community of love and support around each child and their family.



Parents and caregivers care deeply about their child’s academic success. Your investment ensures each youth receives individualized support and access to quality educational services.



Friends know the power of a spark and the possibilities that come when passion is combined with unrelenting focus and self-determination. 92% of our youth go on to enroll in college, pursue employment, or enlist to serve our country.



We root our model in perseverance and grit because that is what our youth and their families embody every day. We amplify their resourcefulness and resilience, doing whatever it takes to make sure they have what they need.



Each program youth has a Friend who listens to their hopes and dreams and empowers them to set—and achieve—their own goals. Through tough times, our youth believe it can get better and have hope for their future.
