How do we fight back against youth violence?​

We equip them with the right tools

and surround them with the right people.


Are you considered an at-risk-youth?

Do you know someone who has what it takes to be successful,

but just needs the right guidance and mentorship?

We have designed a sponsorship package that offers the full entrepreneurship course at a discounted rate for at risk youth. Sometimes, they just need access to the right tools and resources. We've been there, we know. Contact us for more details.
