Do You Remember You Before?

Do you remember you before all the choices you made and all the people who cared along the way who helped you? What if they hadn’t? What if you felt all alone, as life closed in around you?

You’d be just like 9 million kids in America who say they’re growing up without grown-ups to turn to.

Project Potential

We would like to announce our new annual campaign, Project Potential! This will take place of “Bowl For Youth” in the spring of 2022. We still desperately need and ask you to continue to champion our cause. We know that our Bowl for Youth “sponsors” are indeed investing in our mission, not an event.

We ask that you continue to do so through our new, annual campaign, “Project Potential!” We value your support and want you to understand the changes we are making and the reasons behind them.
