Did you know?

Youth in low-income, inner-city communities:

 

  • Are usually associated with underachievement due to limited educational resources, challenging home circumstances and minimal economic development.
  • Suffer PTSD at greater rates than combat veterans.
  • Are more likely to get into fights, join gangs or run away.
  • Are more likely to be charged with a crime by the age of 24 than to graduate college.

 

The 717 Experience is committed to preparing the next generation of leaders for the future.

Young people are influenced by information from so many different places today and those influences have an impact on a child’s self-worth, aspirations and hope for the future. I want to make sure that they see themselves as assets and are prepared for the options and opportunities that tomorrow holds.

Veronica Jones, Founder and President
