Our youth will work well in a group, but not be afraid to stand alone when necessary. They will be better equipped mentally. They will make conscious decisions and better choices throughout life.

They will become more emotionally sound, learning to communicate constructively and effectively by having a platform to vent and release without being judged. They will also become physically fit. Exercise has been proven to relieve stress, to promote respect among peers and also attack the obesity epidemic our world is currently faced with.

Testimonials

I am writing regarding the "Straight Talk Program." (Currently START), I really enjoyed listening to their stories and I appreciate them sharing their experiences with us. I think this was a really good learning experience for me personally.
Breanne Anderson

First I would like to say thank you (for) talking to us. It showed me I could have lots of mistakes...but I can also prevent them because I have control over my life and no one else does. I would like to say thank you again and I think the program should continue.
