To engage youth in community service projects that inspire and empower them to serve in ways that will promote leadership.
To create service and leadership development opportunities for youth, thereby empowering them to become caring, productive, and engaged members of the community. Our goal is for our youth to not only identify community needs, issues and challenges, but have a desire to advocate for and then take action to make a difference in their communities. This will be accomplished through their participation in planning outreach projects as well as participating in learning opportunities that educate them on the basics of personal finance, public speaking, entrepreneurship, public service, and organizational development.
