There is one adult staff person for every five participants. Our goal is to prepare the youth-many of whom come from dysfunctional families-for future success as citizens and parents. It is all too common to see young people with promise not develop their intellectual and social skills while falling victim to illiteracy, drug addiction, homelessness and/or incarceration.
