Our programmatic philosophy is “Positive Youth Development” an all-inclusive concept that engages youth within their communities, schools, organizations, and families in a manner that is productive and constructive; recognizes, utilizes, and enhances youths' strengths; promotes positive outcomes by providing opportunities, fostering positive relationships, and providing the support needed to build on their leadership strengths. Our goals will be accomplished by providing community outreach and athletic programs which will prepare our youth participants for future success.
