Inspiring. Motivating. Making Change
The IMPACT Effect®
“Our differentiating factor is that IMPACT is one of only a few programs that reaches young adults using innovative mentor supported training and hands-on activities in digital media/technology to meet 21st century standards and benchmarks. This is our foundation and is a gateway for opportunities in college, job preparation, social/emotional healing, and productive societal engagement.
