Program Overview

Poshabilities introduces inner-city kids ages 8-12 to the "finer" things in life to inspire them to reach for the very best life has to offer. We believe that if they are exposed to it at a young age, they can dream big, set goals and attain them. Our programs rely heavily on specialized Field Trips.

We want them to see and experience the best that life has to offer so that they can break the cycle of poverty in their families.
We help them discover and develop their natural talents, skills and abilities so they will be passionate about their life's work. We prepare them to be confident, refined and aware of all the Poshabilities and opportunities that education and hard work can provide.

GIRLS

ADULTS
Our final program assist adults in literacy and in re-entering the workplace. They are assessed and developed in their works passion.
