Social Emotional

Our program equips students with the tools to understand and manage their emotions effectively. By fostering emotional intelligence, we empower young individuals to navigate challenges, build resilience, make wise decisions, and cultivate healthier relationships.


In doing so, attendance rates increase, behavioral challenges decrease, school climate and morale improves, while academic success, engagement, and mastery improves.

Developing Champion Readers

Empowering our youth, especially our black and brown males with the tools to become literate, plays a vital role in decreasing behavior problems within schools as well as dismantling the school to prison pipeline. 

We believe that reading is the gateway to endless possibilities. Our program ignites a love for reading by introducing students to captivating stories, sharing the joy of literature, and inspiring a lifelong passion for knowledge.

Mental Health Well Being & Adverse Childhood Experiences

We create a safe space for students to explore their emotions and develop a growth mindset. 

Through thought-provoking discussions and character development exercises, we instill values such as empathy, integrity, and respect. Students learn the importance of personal responsibility, leadership, and making wise choices in spite of the difficulties that may be surrounding them. Students are also able to explore bully prevention methods and bully self awareness.
