We transform the lives of children and families living in immigrant and underrepresented communities through the preparation and delivery of supper meals, the presentation of educational and social resources, as well as production professional, and financial wealth building literacy opportunities.
Nutrition- Nutrition is defined as providing nourishment, especially to a high degree, nourishing, healthful.
Our meals provide very low sugar contents (natural sugar from fruits), the USDA’s required protein levels, good fats and proteins, and minimal GMO ingredients. The main components of our meals derive from plants. Research states a plant-based diet can be good for your heart and overall health. Eating mostly or only fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, whole grains, and meat substitutes like soy, may reduce the odds of getting heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes, when compared to a diet that includes a lot more meat.
Education- Education plays a major role in the growth and progress of any society. It is one of the key components that can make or break a culture’s advancement. When a society’s citizens are educated, they can provide significant contributions to uplift their communities. Additionally, it instills important skills like self-discipline, organization, and completion of a task from start to finish. Higher education helps develop a person into a professional with many work-related skills.
We serve as volunteers in after school programs, providing of hours of skill-based (math and reading) tutoring, while establishing partnerships with corporations and organizations to help our efforts in eliminating learning gaps and building educational confidence.
Employment- “An unemployed youth” is a person between the ages of 15-25 who does not have a job, but actively seeks one based on their educational qualifications.
There are many advantages to working during high school, especially for low-income youth, including higher employment rates and wages in later teen years and lower probabilities of dropping out of high school.
In an effort to help remedy this problem, we seek partnerships with entities to employ and provide paid internships to youth and young adults ages 16-25.
Finance- Financial literacy is important because it provides knowledge about how to manage money and plan for the future. It is an essential life skill for everyone. The Financial Literacy and Education Commission (FLEC) says, “Developing delivery channels through partnerships with the private sector and education providers is critical in extending the reach of the program and making resources accessible to all portions of the community.”
Social Interactions- At its essence, social interaction is defined as the manner in which people talk to and interact with one another. Social interaction is dependent upon the societal structure in which communication occurs. The topic on the benefits of social emotional interactions with young children could go on without end; because social interactions are the foundation levels for a person’s character traits and identity.
In order to increase social interactions in the community for youth outside the school setting, we have partnered with many nationally recognized social organizations to help extend their programs and resources to the communities we serve.
