SFK has touched thousands of young lives with its commitment tohelping children reach their full potential through innovative research-based programs strengthening interpersonal skills, emotional intelligence, problem-solving skills and self-sufficiency. By building personal strength at a young age, SFKgives children the tools to successfully self-manage and prevent adverse behaviors later in life. Highlighting this charity organization and introducing the services they offer to our community will only enhance the development and education of our youth by giving them new tools and resources to become stable, productive, independent young adults.
The Second Annual Youth TakeOver Festival is a unique community event produced by our youth under the guidance of experienced professionals.
