Youth Leadership Empowerment

Due to the nature of the work environment in the United States there is little time available for the young people to learn at the feet of the older generation or their parents. This program brings together respected elders in the community for a healthy discussion. The program is designed to provide the older generation an opportunity to pass on their legacy to the next generation

   

College Visits and Educational Field Trips.

The F4Kidz program is for Kindergarten - 12th grade. Throughout the year we take trips to the St. Louis science center and The Mansanto center. Starting in April we have a soccer program with practice and games once a week. In Our Soccer program we teach kids the fundamentals of soccer, but also strive to help children build confidence and recognize the value of hard work, teamwork and persistence in achieving personal goals. By learning what it takes to play a team sport, kids are also being prepared to be productive citizens.
