Our mission is to promote the growth of vulnerable youth through the creation of unimaginable opportunities, empowerment mentoring, and insightful advocacy.
Who we are.
We are individuals, community members, professionals, leaders and global citizens that are committed to promoting the success, personal and professional growth of vulnerable youth, locally and globally.
We believe in opportunity as a vehicle for personal and community growth. The one. supports the empowerment of youth, through creating social, educational, psychological, and travel opportunities, as a method of improving the lives of vulnerable individuals and healing our communities that are effected by violence, poverty, racial segregation, homelessness, substance abuse, child welfare involvement and criminal justice involvement.
We recognize our vulnerable youth as more than a statistic; a “one in four.” Our youth are unique individuals who, with the right opportunities, can become leaders in their communities and the world.
We support the empowerment of youth through a holistic perspective and recognition of every individual as a unique human being with equal value within their community and the world. In all of our actions we exhibit the highest level of respect, integrity and compassion for the youth and communities we serve.
We believe that all people have the right to opportunity for personal growth, healthy development, quality education, and psychological services, without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, socioeconomic status, or justice involvement.
We believe we have a responsibility to under-served and vulnerable populations to give them a voice, through advocacy, the development of awareness and supportive campaigns, and to create opportunities that promote their resilience and strengths.
