Playmakers’ core program principles teach kids the value of having honorable character, getting a good education and building family support systems.
We believe the cycle of broken families can start to be healed by teaching positive principles which gives the youth self-confidence to be empowered to change the direction of their future. Funding for our programs comes from community businesses who are looking to make positive changes by investing in the youth who will lead us into the future.
