Our past work with youths has afforded us the opportunity to experience and analysis the challenges and obstacles that presented themselves as barriers to employment for our youths. We are familiar with their unfathomable desire to achieve a better life. In fact, our overall mission is to restore hope to hopeless youths by embracing, educating and equipping them with the basic life skills and healthy character traits that will prepare them for a fresh start in life. Employers have referred to job readiness soft skills as the most important barrier to employment at any level.
