I want to start a nonprofit organization based on community beautification through the planting of flowers and trees, putting up gates, cutting grass and cleaning up trash in areas that have lots of potential, but are over looked because of the area. I also want to have a program for the youth of the ages of 5-18, in which there will be teaching of the alphabet, mathematics's, reading, and developing good character and manners. Along with that they will have sports and trips to different places to expand their minds (aquarium, museum, zoo,etc.) I picked these ages because I feel these are the ages the mind starts to pick up what's going on around them and when peer pressure starts to take effect upon them. I want to focus on kids who grow up seeing their older siblings' revert to gang violence and drug selling. I want to develop a program of mentor ship to help guide them away from that lifestyle, because they are our future leaders. I want to start one area at a time and hopefully expand into other cities and states. The kids who participate in the program, we want to be able to get to a point where we can pay them monthly based on the work they do. We feel this will give them the feeling they are doing something positive and at the same time getting paid to do it.
