Our Challenge

While our communities are places of possibility, they also breed hopelessness…

Both young people of color and the adults who support them are overwhelmed by violence, and stress both of which damage well-being, hope and the ability to change things. Schools and youth serving agencies often struggle to support youth of color, and find it difficult to keep them hopeful, and engaged. The result is that millions of young people color are growing up hopeless and disengaged, without the tools they need to create the type of schools and communities in which they can flourish.
