Where Purpose Meets IMPACT
BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE FOR OUR KIDS.
Project Impact 180 is a community-based leadership and mentoring program for youth 7-17 years of age living in high-risk communities. Our programs foster a safe place where youth are trained to creatively explore problems and solutions in their lives, families, and communities through nontraditional experiences.
"They were there for me during times that life was rough as a child and they gave me an outlet to express myself in a positive way."
"Yes, they truly care about the youth and work to make the world a better place for them."
