Our Past, Present & Future

5 Areas of NEED

  • The demand for STEM education in the workplace and technological society
  • The delinquent society that has failed to keep pace with the world conditions that it has created
  • The science-based lifestyles and falling behind even lesser-developed nations in educational standards
  • The unserved and underserved demographic of minority students promising to become the national majority
  • The social, legal, moral and financial consequences of these conditions

What is E.D.G.E.?

E.D.G.E. stands for Excel, Dreams, Goals and Education. Through these four principles the mission of our youth programs is to develop and strengthen the positive character, social, and physical qualities of each participant. We utilize four areas in youth leadership development: After/During School, Mentoring, Prevention, and Recreation.

A.T.E. Impact
