ABOUT  US

 

Founder, LaTanya Johnson, established her organization on June 19, 2013.

 

The organization has been established to work with youth ages 5-13 to provide after school activities including education, recreation communication skill building, social opportunities, advocacy and support. Most importantly this program provides strong relationships with capable, caring, and positive adults, a key component of helping children succeed in a dangerous and violent environment like the Englewood neighborhood in Chicago.

“It takes a village to raise a kid. We lost that. I want to bring that back,” Johnson said. “If I can target 100s of kids, we can make this community, our city, a better place,”  stated by Founder, LaTanya Johnson.

Children Are Resilient

Children are resilient and will thrive in a healthy environment.  All programming offered is geared towards offering a safe space that offers unlimited opportunities for children to thrive, flourish and triumph.
