Influence: The heart of our mission is to influence kids, families, and the community through
one to one mentoring relationships.

and abstinence programs and is key to a kid’s future success.
Acceptance: Regardless of whether a kid attains our spiritual or academic goals, our
unconditional love for that child will not waiver.
Excellence: Our dedication to excellence involves not only demanding our work be above

breaking the poverty cycle through the acquisition of higher education and/or
vocational skills is an inherent value of our mission.
