This small but mighty organization transforms kids' lives! Currently focused on students in Kenosha, WI, the program provides tutoring to disadvantaged young people, with outstanding results--improvement in reading and math, improved grades, and one student who graduated from high school, defying her principal's declaration that she would not!

Leadership training is an important component of the organization's work--students work on projects of their choosing that make a difference in their community. These have included a run to increase awareness about bullying and a fair to raise funds for a local hospitalized child.

This organization is a good steward of donated funds. It runs on a very lean budget, and a lot of heart. Evey dollar makes a difference to a young person and the community!
