U-Turn 180

“To make a complete life turn from unsafe and unhealthy decisions to a healthier life and thinking.”

Our Goal

We envision the community to be a place where youth and families can gather for a meal, and also provide extracurricular activities such as crafts, games, sports, dance and music in a safe environment.

(R.E.A.C.H.)
  • Ready and willing youth
  • Educating students to improve academic performance, healthy behaviors and social skills.
  • Accountable youth lend to healthy families and better communities.
  • Community-building: Youth learn from community speakers and, are encouraged to be involved in community activities.
  • Households: Once the family households have become Ready, Educated, Accountable, and Community builders, the family units are healthier and stronger
