Our mission is to educate and support youth of color to own and rewrite their story. Our youth operate daily in a system where their voices and lives are undervalued. They are inundated with unwarranted blatant oppression, life-threatening situations, micro aggressions, and racism due to the skin they were born in. These youth are in need of safe healthy learning spaces, and facilitators who understand the societal and systemic barriers they face.
