Renaissance Youth Center makes a difference in the lives of over 1200 kids every week, transforming and guiding them through the obstacles of growing up in the inner-city, so they too can look to the future with hope and pride.

We tutor, mentor, offer music, dance and sports programs and instruction, and most of all we teach our kids that their dreams for a successful and healthy future are within reach.

Please help us so we can continue to help the kids in our community. Donate here.
