Mission Statement

We pledge to provide real-life and motivational messages pertaining to substance use/abuse, gang involvement, and lessons about the inevitable consequences of negative life choices.

Our Mission is clear:
To steer youth straight toward making sound, rational decisions by creating a learning experience that provides
them with a message of reality and helps them make
positive, informed choices.

Our Purpose is simple:
To reach youth and young adults through motivational speaking, life-sharing seminars, and interactive curriculum
in order to:

  • Provide youth with real-life examples of negative consequences that resulted from making poor decisions.
  • Impact the minds of youth to steer their lives in positive ways, and encourage them to make positive life choices.
  • Give kids the ability to develop a sense of understanding about the positive and negative choices in their lives.
  • Reduce the number of young people who end up in the criminal justice system due to making poor decisions.

Our Vision is clearly defined:
Every adolescent will hear the message of reality that the consequences of drug use and involvement in gangs and crime greatly outweigh the disillusioned, instant gratification they perceive it to bring.
