Day 10 of our Building Better Holidays campaign features Starts Right Here, a non-profit committed to giving youth a chance to rise above the circumstances they were born into to reach their mental, emotional, physical, and economic potential with the programs it offers.
Their Mission: Encourage and educate young people living in disadvantaged and oppressive circumstances using the arts, entertainment, hip hop, music, programs, a variety of other methods with the objective of breaking down the barriers of fear, intimidation, and other damaging factors leading to a sense of being disenfranchised, forgotten, and rejected.
Their Vision: A community collaboration to enable and empower young people to interact constructively in schools, with police officers, and other government and civic leaders to create partnerships with the business community and build significant relationships to encourage positive life choices. Young people would have a roadmap to a secure future and a path to sustained and increasing quality of life and it starts right here!
