children, families, and the people that support them. We offer programs in schools, Parks and
Recreation facilities, and communities. We

prevention programs. Our program focuses

adversity. Programs start with a
community assessment and end with program evaluations. Our proven approach has changed the lives of
many youth, many of which serve as volunteer in our programs today.

encourage healthy growth into adult hood.Christopher D. Valdez CEO/Founder.
