$5-$25 suggested donation strongly encouraged

The main objective is for students to gain a global view of civic engagement. To gain cultural awareness specific to our host country or state, and to challenge conceptions of identity as it relates to gender, socioeconomic status, and other societal "norms". 

We are establishing a mindset among the youth that no matter their background they have the ability to determine their future outcomes and are able to reach and exceed their potential. Additionally, we help cultivate methods on breaking the cycle. 

For questions contact Akeem Lloyd (akeemspeaks2@gmail.com) Justin Coleman (justink.coleman@yahoo.com) or Ayesha Clarke (clarke.ayesha@yahoo.com)
