We help children get life skills, confidence and motivation now we need your help.

KMA is a non-profit organization that focuses on empowering our youth while giving back to our community. Our mission is very simple and precise. “To be a reputable community-based organization with emphasis on challenging and inspiring our youth to be self-sufficient and goal oriented through life skills and education.” We have a team of motivated individuals that understand the mission and goals of this organization. Our program offers young men and ladies from 10-18 years of age the opportunity to learn valuable life skills, goal setting, character building, leadership skills, and career preparation. Our vision statement is to provide our youth with direction and guidance into adulthood while helping them become productive leaders in our community. Our youth and community will benefit wholeheartedly from the programs we have in place.

I believe the children are our future

Teach them well and let them lead the way

Show them all the beauty they possess inside

Give them a  sense of pride to make it easier 

Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be.
