Our programs and services are designed to reduce or eliminate multiple risk factors that contribute to negative, delinquent and/or high-risk adolescent behavior. We provide a variety of programs designed to engage adolescents and reduce the overall poverty and hopelessness in their communities. Our mission is to be a one-stop Academy that equips youth with the tools and knowledge they need to live a productive life and to be law abiding citizens. All of our programs are designed to empower participants to improve themselves, their families and communities they live in.

 The programs we offer are geared towards students developing life skills, drug and alcohol awareness, and career development training to assist our youth with transitioning into the workforce or college.  SGA STARZ also incorporates community and volunteer services into every program in order to teach the value of work ethics and to increase their students’ employability.  In addition SGA STARZ provides incentives for positive behavior and progression in attaining their goal. Youth have the opportunity to participate in our traveling basketball team, skills & drills training and BEAT the Streetz boxing program.

We are open, accessible, and flexible. We are committed to creating honest relationships that permit us to work alongside the organizations that we support. We also seek to increase the awareness and facilitate the involvement of other funders and agencies in the work of improving the life style and promote opportunity to the youth we serve Southwest GA.
We are committed to having long-term, measurable impact on youth  lives we serve. We seek to address root causes, and we realize that this requires us to address issues at multiple levels. We are committed to tracing the effects of our support to specific individuals and communities, and we realize that this requires reflecting on, clearly defining, and communicating the nature of the change we desire to achieve.
