Our Goal

Our goal is to cultivate our future generation and help them to develop social and personal skills. Tender Heart Crusades (THC) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization with a heart to impact the lives of inner-city youth at risk. We use mentoring programs, community service, and music and arts programs to redirect negative energy, promoting productive members of society.

Our Approach

We use STEM, the Arts, health & wellness, mentoring, and reading to guide student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. We also use Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) to help students understand and manage emotions, cope with life stressors, set and achieve positive goals, build strong relationships, and make responsible decisions.
