Our Programs

POET

We work on creative writing, screenplays,  blogs, short stories and acting sessions. POET is a place that accepts everyone and if you ever feel like you are alone or just a place to hang out then this is the place for you! Just know there is power within you! You have worth! You matter! This is the place that accepts you when you don't accept yourself! We have debates, to open mic events, to movie nights, to singing, dance, writing, language classes! The time for us to unite is now! You don't have to embark on this journey alone!

Mission Statement

When I look around the world, my heart is generally broken. My heart weeps, because I know we are better than this. I know that we are more than this. It breaks my heart so much potential splattered upon the walls. It breaks my heart to see so many talents uncultivated. A world that has so much to offer, but yet chooses to do the very thing that can break a nation. We have exchanged our birthrights for highs, thighs and lies. How I look down and weep. I know we can aspire to do better. I know there is greatness within you. I see greatness in you. I see generations unite at the sound of your voice. I see homes restored at the sight of your touch. In your hands can carve a legacy. In your breath can rule nations. The question I ask you, is will you arise to be what I know you can and ought to be? Aren’t you tired of being less than? Aren’t you tired of being the headliner of bad news? Aren’t you tired of playing the role of scapegoat?

My head bleeds. I cannot sleep. I cannot eat. I want men to arise and take their place. The reason why the majority of our girls run around in confusion and delusion is due to the carelessness of forefathers. You need to change that. You need to be the difference that our world needs. You need to build homes and empires. You need to walk in purpose. You need to stand up for your dreams. You need to weather the tides of struggles. You need to end the misconception of the fast life and walk in his light. You are only as great as you think you can be. Start dreaming. Starting planning. Starting taking your place as Warriors.
