Community Mindset – Because Every Child Deserves a Chance!
As part of our Mentoring program our mission is to fuel the quantity and quality of mentoring relationships for America’s young people and to close the mentoring gap. To hopefully put them on the correct path to success.
As part of our Assistance program our mission is to provide goods and services to children in Northeast and Central Pennsylvania whose parents may be experiencing financial hardship but may not meet the criteria for government assistance. There are families among us who barely have enough food to feed their families, much less purchase warm jackets to protect their children from winter winds or provide them with other comforts that we tend to take for granted. On a monthly basis, our Board Members review requests from at-risk families and then negotiate with members of the business community to purchase whatever is needed to ensure the well-being of every child in need. By organizing fundraisers throughout the year, we are able to ensure that no child suffers needlessly.
As part of our Small Business Incubator Program, we will be providing loans and grants for facilities in which a number of new businesses operate under one roof with affordable rents, sharing services and equipment and having equal access to a wide range of professional, technical, and financial programs. We will also be offering offices and classrooms in which new startups can run their companies from.
And finally as part of Explore the outdoors our mission is to create a program to get kids off their phones and out in nature to enjoy fresh air. We will organize hikes at local trails with experienced tour guides. We will also organize clean up groups to clean up areas of the county where children may play.
