My philosophy is ..there are no bad kids in this world. Gangs have attempted to invade our communities since the ’90s. With the urge built up inside to help guide these young people who have our world in their hands, I wanted to create a route where I can be part of a difference in their lives by pulling teenagers off the streets and away from bad experiences, allowing them a new entrance in life, by showing them that hard work pays off!

I want to show them that whatever it is they put their mind to they can accomplish. Whatever goal that is it they have set or would like to set, they can achieve. Also wanting to give them a little taste of life after high school due to a lot of teenagers not being prepared for college experience or real life alone.

That’s where ‘Awareness Youth’ came about. On May 6th, 2011 We began giving them the opportunity to explore the college life by tours that we offer as well as ways to earn their own money the right way and most importantly help others in the community such as homeless and other fellow young people who are seeking guidance and just need that little push to reassure themselves ‘THEY GOT THIS’.
