needs your support...

Front Yard Bikes, The Big Buddy Program, Humanities Amped, and Line4Line have joined forces to create a coalition whose main focus is to bring youth development programs to a central location where the youth of Baton Rouge can discover their innate talents that will shape the future of Baton Rouge. The Angels Coalition have found a shared space where Baton Rouge youth have access to a network of relationships and opportunities grounded in the worth and power of young people to realize themselves and transform their communities.

Show your support to this coalition by making a donation on Tuesday, December 1st (Giving Tuesday).
