OUR MISSION 

 

We guide and inspire youth (10-22) to reach their worthy: career, lifestyle, and "purpose

in life" goals.  We create and use music (we wrote and recorded 11 songs) and video as

textbooks; and exercises, discussion questions, and projects as learning tools.  We supply

materials to and support institutions that serve youth in the southwestern  United States.

 

OUR VISION

 

Our vision is for all youth to be career ready, live their dream lifestyle, and fulfill their

"purpose in life".
