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.
LaTanya & her staff are conditioned and competent to deal with the daily challenges that arise in aggressive environments. Their professional and compassionate attitudes allows for a perspective that is fresh and effective in dealing with the challenges that the Englewood youth and their families face on a daily basis.
