Our entire focus is on youth. With that, their futures benefit from obtaining skills as well as learning how to be productive citizens of this country. Unit leaders teach integrity, commitment, teamwork, leadership, stewardship, and patriotism in a first responder paramilitary style environment. Youth are provided structure and respect for their hard work.
