As we all know, over the last past years there has been a steady increase of violence in our communities. Surprising to some and well known to others, some of these horrible acts are being committed by our OWN youth. These crimes are being committed because many of our youth lack motivation, direction, and education. Many of these young adults come from areas and households where they are not being taught to have dreams, goals, or ambitions. We felt that these issues could not longer be ignored and needed to be addressed so that our youth can be made aware of the many advantages and opportunities that are available to them.
This non-profit organization is the brain child of Derrick Clark and Tiffany Reed and was established to help promote and motivate today’s youth because many of them are committing, as well as involved in such torturous and life altering acts. P.O.E 4 KIDS promotes juvenile activities to turn these negative circumstances into positive outcomes by offering services such as organized sporting activities, mentoring programs, dance lessons, modeling classes, drama classes, post-secondary seminars, career assessments, as well as other youth services.
Carrots & Beans participants have the responsibility
to develop physically and gain health and wellness
