SGA empowers youth and families to be the heroes in their own lives while impacting communities by providing access to life readiness skills and opportunities.
“In the team of youth I work with, I look for the characteristics that my youth don’t know yet that they have. I feel they are going to be successful, so I help them see that too. With SGA, I’ve learned to be a team player, to be reliable and I’ve learned to take constructive criticism.”
“I want to give my daughter what I never had – love, support and a father. SGA helped me to get a job. SGA helped me learn to be professional, helpful and courteous. I can go to the ends of the Earth to support my daughter now.”
“I’ve lived in my neighborhood since I was a baby. There are good people here. Give them a chance and the people interested in change will take part.”
