Colors of Success
This organization was established more than 20 years ago to address these pervasive problems and has experienced great success since it was first established. Not only does the organization draw together different public resources, including law enforcement, education, and services organizations, but it emphasizes working with families and individuals within the service areas. The organization has established a policy of providing programs to improve school attendance, academics, and citizenship. Its emphasis on character development and self-esteem through mentoring programs and training in life skills and potential careers has resulted in a number of at-risk youth achieving success and becoming community leaders.
