Our Community Collaboratives & Partners

Forbush School at Prince Georges County was the first recipient of our pilot program "We Can Work Too".  This program is designed to work with participants with disabilitiesin a setting where they can learn new skills and utilize them.  Participants worked with coaches and aides to keep them on target. The list is currently closed...

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.

  • Activities for at-risk youth and their families; to promote peace, good health and a non-violent community.
