A kid on the street with no direction can be easily taken advantage of through negative influence and potentially put into harms way.

Our youth deserve to be inspired and driven towards positive paths in life. After-school programs guide our youth in how to react in a competitive environment, providing them with verbal conflict resolution and team building skills.

At Patrick Lives On we believe every child should have an opportunity to be in an extra-curricular activity.
