Our Mission

"To Help At-risk Youth Discover Their Purpose Through Life Skills Education and Mentoring."

Our primary ministry goals of A Better Tomorrow’s programs:

  • Youth Empowerment
  • Improve student achievement
  • Foster healthy relationships between students, their parents, teachers, and peers. 
  • Encourage innovative and creative mindsets
  • Decrease negative, destructive behavior
  • Increasing parental involvement, by offering workshops and resources.
  • Become liaisons between students, parents and the school.
  • Increase the involvement of business community and faith-based organizations, by offering collaboration opportunities that are mutually beneficial for all parties.

We surround students with adults who will listen, understand and offer the love of Christ as they help them navigate the sometimes rough waters of their lives.

We build relationships and become the voice of hundreds of students who feel no one is listening or cares.  We do all this by staying focus on the main thing, which is Jesus Christ, on who this ministry was founded and is built on.
