2018 - 2019 ANNUAL REPORT

LETTER FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Thank you for taking an interest in reading our annual report.  We are thrilled about the information we have to share for the 2018 - 2019 Program Year.

When we started this organization, we had the simple mission to Strengthen, Help, Inspire, and Encourage Leadership Development by delivering structured mentoring activities and programs for young people. 

 

Since the beginning, so many people have joined our organization to make it possible for our community to impact hundreds of young people and their families. We could not have done any of this without the avid support of the community and supporters like you.

We added over 60 new donors in the fiscal year 2018, and continue to generate nearly 75 percent of our total revenue from individual contributions.

I am impressed by the direction that our organization has taken and the path that has been set for our continued growth. As the visionary, I have my eyes on far greater for everyone who chooses to be a part of this thriving organization -- parents, youth, and partnering agencies alike!

Precious McKoy,

Founder/Executive Director

Anonymous Parent

He can see his grades and assignments online through the program called Power School.  Something finally clicked where he truly cared about his grades and progress he was making towards A/B honor roll.  He took ownership of his grades and responsibilities (chores, homework, hygiene, etc.).

Anonymous Parent

My son daily works on [his leadership skills].  He has grown tremendously in this area over the past month!  He is confidentially displaying leadership skills at church and at school and learning to work on this in areas when he is not as comfortable.

Sherrianita Pitts Alexander
