Every download helps support our organization and provide creative ways like these to keep our youth engaged, inspired and impressed with our efforts to believe in them.

The lyrics from this song were shared by students that took part in our Build Your SELF Initiative that took place from January-March 2021. Having the students take part in our first annual program of this kind helped them understand self-esteem, self reflection, self discipline, motivation, worth, wellness, protection, and self accountability, to name a few. It was very fun and the interaction was rewarding for our group, the participants from as far away as Oakland, California, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, Pa. 

Contributors joined us to offer our students ideas and straight-forward answers to their questions about career choices, school struggles and aspiration. 

Partnering organizations included professional and certified experts in subjects such as mental wellness, physical fitness, nutrition for the mind, body and soul.

Again, click on the album cover below and support the efforts that show just how being creative, being included and given the opportunity helped each student in their unique, non-judgmental, thoughtful, fun, and youthful way to extend their reach and have a foundational purpose to 

"Build Your SELF"!!
