The purpose of our program is designed to use mentoring, guidance and athletics as a tool to obtain an education. In our program we will focus on mentoring, athletics, advisement, leadership, education and scholarship to help promote student athletes to attend a two/four year college, military or gain employment. The ultimate goal is to mentor and help our youth get a high school diploma that will allow them to get a job or attend a two/four year institution. 

The mission of the program is to mentor and help non-traditional high school athletes that wants to participate in sports during high school maintain their core GPA and standardized testing score, in order to become eligible for college admission. Our goal is to provide student athletes with an opportunity to gain college entry and compete at the collegiate level.
