This year, we will be celebrating twenty five years of service! The organization has grown through leaps and bounds as it is truly a blessing to see all of the youth who participated in the program finish high school, pursue post-secondary education, obtain advanced degrees and some have gone into the field of social services. They are truly all effective leaders in their own right! What an exciting time for us all to witness the progress of those who were a part of the program and those who paved the way.
As we move foward and prepare for the next phase, TIC's Board of Directors have decided to move the organization in a new direction. We want to be deliberate on including innovative and creative leadership programs that specifically target those youth who live in foster care and homeless shelters! We are also very excited that we are mobile so that means, we will be able to go where the teens are, i.e. schools, churches, community centers and more. It's all about teaching youth how to be more involved by doing outreach on a global level! Please stay tuned and in touch with us to help us spread the word. We want to contine to be around for another twenty plus years and beyond but simply cannot do it without YOU!
TIC looks forward its signature projects and ongoing community outreach so we invite NEW strategic partners to join our team. If you are interested, please contact us. In order for nonprofits to thrive, donations are always appreciated. Please connect with us to let us know if you have a great fundraising idea or consider making a tax-deductable donation today.
Each one, teach one...Let's show our youth how it's done. I have already passed the torch to my daughter, Jala Makeda McDaniel, a senior in high school and active youth participant in the program today. She along with her peers have taken the lead and assisting with operating other TIC chapters in future years to come as we preserve the legacy for the future generation. To God be the Glory!
