Focusing on Intellectual Property in the following areas:

This program provides services for young adults and adults 95% who may have felonies, former criminal activity or 5% may need just guidance. It is our goal to encourage our community business owners and officials to help us give our economically depressed communities that are faced with high crime incidents to take a second look at the way we support or don’t support our young adults. Whatever the streets have and are offering our young adults, we must be prepared to compete with them in educating, employment, and reconstructing the person through teaching them how to become resourceful, responsible and appreciative. We must help them to experience self worth, unselfishness, pride and a sense of accomplishment. They need a family instead of a gang. The monies we spend on our taxes to better our cities, towns, and communities, we can either continue to take the easy road and build jails and prisons or we can spend money rebuilding our young adults who will in turn build our cities and towns. Through this program we hope to market their success and in doing so, leave the door open for someone else who may have become weary of that pattern of life and have a desire to get out.
