Our Mission

 Mission

  ... is to promote athletics, music, and the arts, while utilizing them as a platform to help inspire our youth to reach for their  dreams, develop their character, and build their self-esteem.

  Working together so we can....

  • Inspire all of our children of the possibilities that life has to offer them.
  • Encourage them to believe in these possibilities and more importantly, believe in themselves.
  • Help them turn their dreams into reality by helping them develop a plan so that they can begin achieving their goals.
  • Promote the fundamental life values and skills that will help build a child of strong character, responsibility, and self-esteem.





Why?

ALL CHILDREN DESERVE A CHANCE TO LEARN, PLAY, BELIEVE, AND SUCCEED!
According to an article published in June 2010 by Education Week, the national graduation rate stood at 68.8% for 2007 graduates. Even worse, an article published in September 2010 in the Philadelphia Inquirer, states that the Philadelphia District's 4-year graduation rate is a mere 56%.

In an effort to reduce juvenile delinquency and increase graduation rates, we would like to promote an environment that promotes dedication, character, responsibility, and self-esteem starting from an age when our youth are still developing their values.

What?

We work with various organizations to help achieve our mission. We believe that we should bring our non-profit mission to those organizations that are creating exceptional programs for our youth and add an element of character building, self-esteem growth, and goal development. We will work closely with our partner organizations to provide our non-profit mission and services and eliminate the hassle for our partner organizations to incorporate as a 501c3, as long as the program is aligned with our mission.
