In 2019 a troubled teen faces behavioral, emotional, or learning problems beyond the normal teenage issues. They may repeatedly practice at-risk behaviors such as violence, skipping school, drinking, drug use, sex, self-harming and other criminal acts. They may exhibit symptoms of mental health problems like depression, anxiety, or eating disorders. While any negative behavior repeated over and over can be a sign of underlying trouble.


Our vision is to decrease community violence and provide a safe environment for young people to challenge themselves. We will achieve this with an emphasis on education, mentoring and referral programs, and a confidence-coaching curriculum. Striving to positively impact our young people, we advocate for and empower youth by helping them to become positive role models and leaders in their community.
