Programs and events planned for this summer celebrate the important role that positive alternatives play in keeping Grand Rapids and the surrounding city's youth safe, engaged, inspired, and motivated to become all that they can be.

Now more than ever, most American families need some kind of afterschool care. For many parents, these afterschool hours are filled with worry and risk. It is during these hours that youth are most likely to be victims or perpetrators of crime. As with all community initiatives, the more partners that join in the effort, the more successful we are in providing opportunities for youth in an enriching haven that keeps them safe. Your donation and active involvement will allow us to continue inspiring, motivating, and changing lives, one youth at a time with inspiring programs and activities.

Please consider partnering with us and donating to these wonderful programs & events which provide additional activities in the future. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact Duke Turley Jr. (email at
