Above the E.D.G.E. is a Youth & Adult Development institution, as well as a successful Youth & Corporate Development system.
Transformational change happens, and the tipping point is often simple. In this case, a practical system is developed for the simple purpose of putting our kids, and thus our future,
It all happens when you really think about the depth of these four words:
EXCEL – To vigorously pursue excellence
Dream – To imagine
Goals – To plan
Education – To study
This is the E.D.G.E. And the result is the same as the pursued results of the “best practices” research in the Youth Development Industry: Healthy, successful, career engaged youth & young adults; for that is where America’s future opportunity resides.
Above the E.D.G.E. serves as a hybrid within the Youth Development Industry which compliments the curriculum and activities of: vocational & all other fundamental schools, specialized youth development services, tutoring services, sports & youth activity leagues, and counseling groups.
Above the E.D.G.E. is constructed to extend beyond the confines of just sports and will create bridges to all industries and activities. All industries are kindred through the E.D.G.E. principles.
Above the E.D.G.E. will take those elements of industry differentiation to develop an operational position of an organization that: Connects, Educates, and Inspires.
