About Us

Our mission is to help youth increase their literacy IQ. This is accomplished by engaging them in unique, alternative education and mentoring programs in creative writing and performance; college, career and financial readiness, and STEM workshops, encampments and community service.

M.O.M.s vision is to awaken the imagination and curiosity of youth, tangibly assisting them in improving life outcomes. We strive to promote literacy and educational excellence. M.O.M. encourages young people to custom design their narratives, expand peer networks, embrace their majesty; and celebrate and accept their uniqueness – quirks and all.

Our “On the Road” format enables us to go wherever the need is to gets kids and teens ready. Our programs, events and mentoring are diverse, imaginative, fun, and youth-centered.
