How we got here:
Three people with individual passions, discussions and planning for 2.5 years, each of us getting the urge/the call to action. Brendon has been working with young men in his community for years assisting/coaching them in sports. Aundrea has been working with youth in the community at afterschool programs for years. Marci has been very active in the community as a council member with a focus on youth activities for years. Each of us noticing a void in social development skills for our youth. We started meeting and developing our program for filling these voids.

OUR MISSION- OUR GOAL
Provide the stepping stones to foster a seamless transition into our youth’s best selves by becoming effective change agents for a better future through community involvement as well as improved socialization and development skills.
