Our Work

Words can’t describe how grateful and blessed we are for hosting our first Youth Public Safety Academy 2023. A special “THANK YOU” to all our instructors and staff that made this summer program happen!

I believe that if we want to see change, we have to take the time to invest in the future of our youths

In order to see successful leaders, we need to stand by them and support them.

So, thank you to those who encouraged these students in every way. Thank you to those who assisted and attended this event to show your support.

We look forward to next year's 2024 Summer Academy

They learn technical skills needed to be a competent trainee. Youth learn about leadership, time management, accountability, responsibility, communication skills, teamwork, sacrifice, integrity and the importance of respect. Youth meet a group of dedicated professionals who are passionate about mentoring the next generation of public safety personnel. Thank you to our local agencies: Richmond Fire, Richmond Police, Department of Homeland Security, Split-Second Response, Retired Public Defender Funk, Richmond Fire Battalion Chief Rincon and Retired Richmond Police Deputy Chief Médina for your continued support.
