Mission

To harness the intelligence and positive energy of low-income young people to rebuild their community and their lives.

Philosophy

As a community, we are engaged in a united struggle to overcome the social, political, economic, educational and spiritual inequities, which threaten to destroy us as a people.

We recognize that, as young people, we are one of the greatest resources available to the survival of the community.

Therefore, we stand ready and willing and hereby pledge our commitment:

  • to rebuild and improve the quality of life in our community through collective work and responsibility and cooperative economics;
  • to educate, elevate and raise the consciousness of ourselves and others along the way;
  • to develop our potential as leaders and positive role models so we can proactively pursue justice, equality and peace for all.

All this we do with appreciation, love, dignity, respect and faith that the collective will of the community is the greatest force conceivable.
