Our purpose is to empower at-risk youth with critical job and life skills that move them toward self-sufficient lives. To enhance career readiness, we invite professional community mentors to come alongside the youth as teachers and guides to:
- engage in agricultural, culinary and micro-business learning and work practices;
- strengthen STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) knowledge base;
- develop marketable job skills; and
- increase employment and interpersonal life skills.

* Self-sufficiency means families are able to meet their basic needs without having to rely on any public or private assistance. In Tulsa County, the self-sufficiency standard is $39,978 or $18.93 per hour for a single parent with two children.
