What We Do

We organize educational programs that are offered to students in grades 1-12 living in economically disadvantaged communities. 

How We Do It

Our goal is to promote active partnerships involving youth, parents, and community, in order to create opportunities that will break the cycle of poverty and enable children to develop into healthy, productive, vision-driven adults.

Why We Do It

F.R.E.S.H. challenges them to dream, hope, and believe they can reach their full potential and accomplish their goals with determination, tenacity, fortitude, and hard work--no matter what the circumstance.


The S.T.E.M. Program


We hope to increase and sustain youth engagement by providing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) learning opportunities and prepare economically disadvantaged children for tomorrow’s STEM workforce. 

Kids in Motion


Children are engaged in group sports and physical fitness exercises to promote good health and lessen childhood obesity. In addition, participants learn the importance of good sportsmanship, teamwork, and fair play.

Reading Enrichment


The Reading Enrichment program gives children the opportunity to participate in exciting reading enrichment activities that help instill a love of reading, improve reading fluency and comprehension skills.

F.R.E.S.H. Community Service


F.R.E.S.H. members, parents, and staff participate in service learning projects and events that link character education, organization, planning, leadership skills and teamwork with community needs and service. F.R.E.S.H.'s community service class gives students an opportunity to plan, implement, and participate in various community service projects throughout the year.  

Music & Arts


F.R.E.S.H.'s music and art programs give students an opportunity to receive  professional dance, dramatic arts, and visual art instruction in order to develop an appreciation for the arts, help with concentration, increase self-confidence, and pride.

F.R.E.S.H. Smart Choices


Students involved in Smart Choices are engaged in activities, rap sessions and workshops that promote good character. Students are encouraged to make healthy life choices as it relates to emotional and physical health, education, personal responsibility, ethics, and more.
