All Kids Need:

- safe and caring places to live, learn, and play
- opportunities to provide service to others, and learn and try new things
- healthy habits
- hope for the future
If we believe it takes a village to raise a child, then we need to accept our role as a villager.
- Smile at young people.
- Learn their names and use them.
- Teach and learn from youth.
- Support the adults who teach, coach, mentor, and support young people.
Our approach is find their sparks, to support and nurture their strengths, to help minimize and reduce risky behaviours.
