About Us

This foundation has been created through Mike's work as a musician/artist and in coordination with working with youth in developing countries.

The Foundation provides programming and aid for at-risk youth across the United States and provides opportunities for youth in developing countries while creating meaningful local partnerships for sustainability. The foundation has also provided disaster relief, mental health programming support for youth and families, and helped pass legislation in support of human rights.

The foundation is designed to target children and teens that are victims of domestic violence, abuse, neglect, in connection with gangs, and drug abuse, and provide a safehaven where teens are given support and guidance. The Foundation provides opportunities for our teens to build confidence and life skills by participation in community service and mentor programs. These programs and projects, which include volunteer opportunities, music lessons, building schools, beautification projects, and more will mirror to our teens the importance of values, building relationships and ultimately will result in strong character. These programs work collaboratively with schools and organizations within the community to promote stability and sustainability.

Mike says "The goal of my foundation is to empower youth, show them that they can be in control of their lives, and help them to develop effective coping skills. This Foundation will show our youth that they can make a difference in the world and help them become the leaders that they strive to be. I am confident that through my Foundation, our youth will have the opportunities and assistance to succeed."
