For students interested in college, scholarships are available upon successful completion of the program.

“I’ve never in my life attended such a powerful, useful, informative and transformative training.  As I told Dr. Marshall, this model should be used everywhere, if only people were more receptive to it and wanted to keep kids alive and free.”

The Alive & Free Prescription™ works to effectively change beliefs, attitudes, values and actions that promote violence. This three day workshop is highly recommended for anyone who works with youth in community-based settings.

We made history this month with our Street Soldiers Radio Live Town Hall, which brought together police chiefs and community youth in a riveting discussion on how we can all play a part in improving police and community relations.

Thank you to everyone who joined in on this important and powerful discussion as we work together to keep our community Alive & Free!

This past summer our Collegian Eric Welch studied Spanish and accounting abroad in Ecuador. He is currently majoring in Political Science at Florida A&M University.

Eric interned at Centro de Americano, a place where locals went to learn English. “Some people spoke English, some didn’t so we worked together to communicate.  They treated me with respect, always willing to teach me something. They showed me a lot about accounting. As I learned how to do all the accounting work in Spanish, I feel like this is something that can help me out right now as an Accounting Assistant.  I still have a lot of learn, but I was able to learn.”
