The L.O.V.E. Program


Our youth initiative- L.O.V.E,  targets children ages 6 to 17 and provides them with a safe space to express themselves while developing personally.  Through the Lifting Our Values Everyday campaign, youth are exposed to an assortment of enrichment activities that foster diversity, self-respect, community & cultural awareness and education.  Children are engaged after school and during summer break by a dedicated staff who remain committed to their transformations.

Biz-N-Hoops Leadership League

For the last eight summers our Biz-N-Hoops program has created a positive outlet for more than 350 young men and women. This basketball league targets at risk youth and young adults and provides an environment for them to develop their leadership, conflict management and team building skills while competitively participating in a 6 week basketball tournament. This peace initiative keeps youth safe and empowered during the summer months.
