Youth and Education Empowerment Programs

believe in building academically, socially and behaviorally responsible youth becoming successful contributing members of the community and socially minded adults.   Our programs start with making significant impacts in their lives leading them to greater success as adults. Our programs provide a safe nurturing environment where youth can expand their horizons, establish leadership skills, build self-confidence and improve their education. The programs engage youth in community activities, education enhancements, provide positive role models and deter them from participating in crime and gang violence. Additionally, all of our youth programs work with parents and guardians to make sure that they are also receiving training and information on how to keep their children on a path of success. Programs consist of academic enrichment opportunities such as FCAT tutoring, high school drop out prevention programs and SAT/ACT prep, the National Award Winning National Urban League Incentive to Excel and Succeed (NULITES) Chapter, the national model program National Achievers Society (NAS), First Time Offenders program, Minority Business Leaders Speakers Bureau, Youth Employment Training Program, High School Credit Recovery Program, mentoring and scholarships, Comcast Digital Connectors, and Senior Digital Literacy.
