Our Mission

We partner with youth, families, and youth-serving organizations to help build capacity for transformative collective impact. By forming strategic partnerships, leveraging assets, and addressing needs, we provide a multi-pronged approach to programming and services that lead to community advancement.

The Blueprint

Connect. Heal. Learn. Build.

  • We CONNECT because we believe that our individual successes are tied to our collective success, and that liberation requires community. We bring people together to achieve our shared goals.

  • We create space to HEAL from the harm caused by trauma and oppressive systems. We also acknowledge the ways we have internalized harmful practices and do the work to heal any harm we’ve caused.

  • We value LEARNing as a prerequisite for liberation, and recognize that it also includes the unlearning that happens as we heal. Knowledge empowers us to make change and create the thriving villages we deserve. 

  • As we learn and heal, we work together to BUILD strong families and thriving communities. We do this by increasing capacity, removing barriers, and creating access to vital resources.
