To eradicate cognitive distortions caused by the culture of poverty in high-risk inner city communities using a holistic approach.
Through the development and implementation of meaningful and enriching programming, we aim to improve community weaknesses while fortifying their strengths.
CORE, otherwise known as Choices, Ownership, Respect and Evaluate is the foundation upon which all out programming, and the organization in general, is built upon. The meaning behind each value is as follows:
Choices; Our life is the sum result of all the choices we make because every action taken comes from a choice made.. When you control the process of choosing, you can control every aspect of your life.
Ownership; When we take ownership over our lives and actions, we ensure that fewer and fewer people have impact and you become "the most powerful person in your universe." Taking responsibility for your actions is the only way to progress in life, learn from our choices and make better ones.
Respect; There are many ways to attain greatness and achieve success, but any road traveled to reach our fullest potential has to be built upon a foundation of respect for self, the commitment and other's around you.
Evaluate; Often we must evaluate ourselves and our actions to ensure that the goals set forth are being followed and to adjust accordingly if they are not. Self reflection is one of the most important tools for any growth or development because self awareness breeds self esteem and self control.
