Our IDEOLOGY

We believe in the dignity and worth of all people, regardless to race, creed, color, or gender – especially youth who have uncontrollable external obstacles, which negatively impact their growth and development. This belief invokes certain rights:

      Youth have a right to education, regardless of their personal situations, circumstances, and/or tainted histories or affiliations.

      Youth have a right to continue with their education in public institutions without labeling and placement in penitentiary like facilities.

      All people have a right to education in a conducive, safe, learning environment.

      Life chances, sensibilities, hopes, dreams, and visions of youth – no matter how questionable – deserve the same respect we reserve and demand for ourselves.
