Break the Cycle

If you didn’t believe you had access to equitable employment regardless of effort, would you care about your education or criminal record?

At-risk youth are negatively and disproportionately represented in significant perspective and access limiting challenges:

  • Multi-Generational Single-Parent homes & poverty
  • Juvenile Arrests & Incarcerated Parents
  • Lack of On-time High-school Completion
  • Lack of completion of Bachelor & Masters degrees
  • Equitable Employment and Entrepreneurship Opportunities

 Can education results be changed as a result of motivation, exposure and access to equitable employment?

Are you ready to be part of the solution?

If you aren't part of the solution, you are part of the problem.
