Encouraging Youth

Nurturing potential.

We believe every child should be able to explore their interests and develop their talents. Our founder, George Jenkins, used to say, “Find out who you are, what you want to be, and go for it.” To help children achieve their dreams, we are proud to support a variety of programs—including summer camps, art exhibits, music programs, and youth wellness initiatives—that inspire young minds, nurture potential, and build confidence.
