Does the Foundation focus on any particular age group?

Start with Young People, but Expanding

As the focus is character development, our primary outreach is geared toward primary, elementary and early high school aged young people, however the curriculum and resources supplied by the Foundation have proven effectiveness for all ages including troubled youth. The Foundation's programs are exportable to residential settings, summer camps and traditional and home school curricula.
