ABOUT US
To nurture the whole child through physical,  emotional, social and spiritual development.
Not only do we offer a safe space, but we contribute towards positive outcomes in our community, such as avoidance of drug and alcohol abuse, decrease in gang violence, increase in sexual knowledge and reduction in juvenile crime. Our communities are losing faith in our young people and together with our partners we wish to change the narrative.

Creating purposeful pathways for tomorrow’s trailblazers.

We exist to help youth navigate through life’s paths with the right tools and human support by their side.  Our overall goal is to keep learners in school, to obtain better grades and to graduate from grade 12 with a vision in mind.   To decrease the use of alcohol and drug abuse, sexual behavior leading to teenage pregnancies and to minimize youth crime in the community.  Give youth opportunities to develop leadership and decision-making skills, whilst developing new skills and interest.  Provide enriching, creative activities they can participate in.  

I had a very nice day. I learnt alot of things, things I didn't know before. I loved everything.
