People in our local communities are disproportionately impacted by systemic injustice. Empowering people socially, educationally, and economically creates lasting change.
Individuals and families in the Lehigh Valley are entangled in a system that perpetuates a culture of hopelessness, poverty, discrimination, and crime. We believe the way forward is to empower people to seize opportunities to flourish socially, educationally, and economically so our communities will thrive.
We train, empower, and support a network of leaders who effect change in their neighborhoods.
We develop leaders through character education, racial equity workshops, and job placement.
We collaborate with key stakeholders who are committed to working together to transform our city.
“I grew up on 2nd Street in Allentown, and I grew up through middle school and high school without any hope whatsoever. I had no hope for a future… but I learned that character is important. And now I believe that character education should be in every school and every program.”
— Darian Colbert, Executive Director
