Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.  James Baldwin (1924-1987), American novelist & playwright

We were honored to have support from our very own Congressman A. Donald McEachin.  He stopped by to share some encouraging words with the youth and parents.  Thank you for taking the time to pour back into our youth and community!

Lastly, The Saint Paul’s Baptist Church and my pastor Dr. Lance D. Watson, Senior Pastor for allowing us to host the event at the church.  You have always been an advocate for youth and education.  Thank you for your continued support and guidance!


Dear College Student,

An apple seed doesn’t produce oranges or bananas. It produces apples. Which means, your current habits will determine your destination. Put in the work now because you are preparing for what you are yet to become.  #YBConnects #SoftSkills #LinkedInLocksmith
