- Our children are full of potential. With the right start, they can become the lawyer who fights for what's right or the doctor who saves the day. They can be contributors to our community. Together, we can give them the boost they need to get there.

Summer Enrichment Program
In our Summer Enrichment Program, children spend mornings reading and writing with certified teachers, leaving the afternoons for exploring! With your support, we give children the chance to stretch their legs and their horizons. They'll be learning new skills – swimming, African dance and drumming, acting and gymnastics. They'll be going on field trips and trying their hands at art, science experiments and community service.Learn More
