Our Community Collaboratives & Partners

Forbush School at Prince Georges County is the first recipient of our pilot program "We Can Work Too".  This program is designed to work with participants with disabiliteis in a setting where they can utilize their skills.  Participants work with coaches and aides to keep them on target 

We believe that "A new way of thinking creates a new way of living."

 

MISSION:
The Youth Empowerment Workshops improves and impacts the lives of youth by bringing about a positive cultural change through science, technology, engineering & math (STEM), workshops, arts, creativity and fun.  We host annual Youth Empowerement Summits (Y.E.S. "It's a Youth Thang") througout the District of Columbia.

 

In response to the ongoing challenges posed by the youth crisis plaguing our school systems, communities and our homes; we would like to express our concern.  Through all of the turmoil and confusion, some of our youth have become numb and almost non-existent in the cycle of conformity. Together we've internalized ways in which we can become a benefit and part of a resolution to heal the broken systems of communication, increase parent involvement and bridge the gap between parents, schools and our communities.  Our collaborative dedicate and commit ourselves to becoming the link in healing, nourishing and bridging the gap.

Our nonprofit,   501 (c) 3 charitable organizations provide the Community with:

  • Activities for at-risk youth and their families; to promote peace, good health and a non-violent community.
  • Increased academic knowledge through our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) program.
  • Recreational and athletic activities.
  • Positive mentoring, leadership, character skills promoted through tutoring, good health, life skills training, social and self awareness, and a safe haven.
  • Job Training for youth and their families.
  • Promote self-worth promotion by teaching and hosting workshops to encourage development and direction, tutoring services, etiquette classes and field trips outside of living communities.
  • Encouraging open  forums of discussions to resolve community differences among youth and teach ways of resolving problems before they escalate into community disruptions.
  • Cultural Expressions through the arts.
  • Domestic violence awareness, gang prevention and intervention and safe sex awareness.
