Our educational mission is “Carpe Diem with wisdom”. Our KANG (Kids Aspiring to New Goals) Scholarships assist zealous youth, 10 to 15 years old.  The awards are directed toward advanced training in the area of their passion (Arts, Humanities, Sciences or Athletics).

In addition, we focus on Community outreach to provide recent and applicable research and resources to help teens, parents and mentors navigate the maze of maturation. “Passion tempered by knowledge forges wisdom."

100% of all funds raised are directed to our mission because we are an all-volunteer charity.

Our donors & volunteers create ripples that positively effect individuals, families, communities and lifetimes, by tossing one pebble at a time.
