Maurice manages our ever-important relationships within the community and overall project management.
When adolescences enter the DON’T COUNT ME OUT program they should not leave the same way they came. Parents should expect from their child:
• Positive change in attitude
• Drive for Success
• Appetite for Learning

• Self Confidence

• Psychological Openness

Our children will have opportunities

It's never too early (or late) to set good dental care habits in motion. These, combined with regular checkups and cleanings, can ensure a lifetime of smiles. We have technology that makes the long-term care of  your child's teeth a breeze.
It takes a team of dedicated individuals and volunteers to make sure our campaign is reaching out to as many communities as it can so kids everywhere have access to our free mentoring services. We're fortunate to have some of the best dedicating their time, energy, and expertise to our cause.

This campaign is reaching out to communities in Georgia to give the most vulnerable youth that have been over looked and systematically set up for failure, an opportunity to sit at the table of “Success”. 

We need the help of the parents and grandparents.


​​We believe that building and sustaining strong communities helps everyone. That's why we have partnered with Louis White to develop communities through the design and construction of playgrounds, youth learning centers and just better communities.
