Improving Lives Through Education and Employment

We have seen the deterioration of lives and communities occur because jobs are not available, especially for low-income youth and young black males.

Through our unique partnerships, we are able to offer students who complete the Aspiring Leaders Program, an opportunity for first consideration with one of the many employers with whom we work.

We hold true to the phrase, “…it’s not how you start, but how you finish!” as many of the young people we work with have criminal records that might otherwise impede their ability to find gainful employment. We believe lives can be repaired and better choices can be made when essential skills are taught and applied.

Those skills are taught in our school and Aspiring Leaders Program and then are used to secure a job and pursue an education.
