“Our program teaches children about setting goals and achieving them. It teaches them to take control of their lives and realize that they are the captain of their ship and whatever they put into life is what they are going to get back. They learn to be positive and optimistic and that they have a purpose in life. They will not float around confused not knowing why they are here. They will find their goal in life and when they each have set a goal with a positive intention, they will not be confused and scared any more. They also learn to be responsible individuals that take accountability for their actions. These qualities help children ensure their success in school and in life”.
