The Avenue


Parents are among the most important people in the lives of young children. Sadly, many parents’ lives are fraught with problems and uncertainty regarding their ability to ensure their children’s physical, academic, career, emotional, or economic well-being.

The Avenue is a convergence of young people and their parents to:

  • Enhance healthy early childhood experiences
  • Ensure a head-start to a great career
  • Promote positive outcomes for children
  • Help parents build strong relationships with their children

Our plan this year
