We believe that every child deserves a chance to live a full, long life; one that isn’t interrupted or ended through violence. Our main GOAL is to help children develop resilience, and we provide them with all the tools they will need to become competent, productive adult members of society
To inspire youth in under-resourced communities to achieve academic and personal excellence and mentor and train youth to make positive decisions when dealing with issues of violence.
1. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to dream of and create a life beyond their current circumstances and a chance to live a full, long life; one that isn’t interrupted or ended through violence.
2. Breaking the cycle of apathy and violence in a young person’s life can happen with the right nurturing, love, safety, and structure.
3. We value and model positive, healthy relationships and good communications, because youth who know they are safe and supported, can soar to their full potential.
4. We know firsthand the power of choosing to break through the unproductive cycles and loneliness we grew up with. We created RU4C to ensure that every youth has access to the support, skills, and a strong foundation they need to move past limitations and live their successful lives.
