Education

The key to a healthier and more prosperous life. 

We value education as a key component for living a healthier and more prosperous life. Our education and youth development programs provide young people with the critical skills they need to excel academically, avoid at-risk behavior and become engaged members in their communities. Tutoring, college preparation, and leadership development are some of the many educational advancement tools offered.

 

Program Overview

Youth are provided with tutoring and homework assistance after school and on non-school days, employability skills training, physical fitness, life skills, and cultural and leadership activities.
