Since our inception in 2011, we have reached over 8,000 students, ages 11-14 years old from a wide range of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Our programs are designed to empower the creativity, resourcefulness, and potential within each student in an effort to develop their character, academic, and leadership abilities to ensure future success. Hundreds of volunteers and community professionals help facilitate initiatives that include: experiential leadership projects, community outreach, personal character development, career components, and mentorship.
In 2015, our students embarked on an entrepreneurial project and launched a for-profit business - The REAL Kitchen - producing a fresh salsa product available for purchase in the Norman and Oklahoma area.
