Obtaining an education is the key to developing successful skill sets. Learning to and enjoyment in reading comprehension is perhaps the most important skill of all. Reading skills provide the ability for “At Risk Youth” to travel to places that she/he may not have the opportunity to visit in person, to create new ideas that she/he may not have explored, and to unleash the possibilities for their futures that they may not have yet dreamed of.

Children and young adults are the future. It is imperative that we invest our time, energy and research to enhance their personal and educational experience. In turn, our community will be enhanced and thrive.

I am so thankful that God blessed me with more than one passion in my life. I had the opportunity to play Professional Basketball for 15 years which included 2 Olympic Gold Medals, and I absolutely loved the experience. Now God has given me a new arena to experience, the lives of At Risk Youths. I know with the right P.M.A. each youth will aim higher and experience who they are and who they can become. Accept the challenge that I have in my life, join the team; lets connect the dots in the lines of Our Community’s At Risk Youth.
