At True-Liif, we believe that preparing our children for this world requires more than traditional classroom instruction and a 9-5 job. Therefore, we position ourselves to invest in the whole child while building relationships with their support networks to empower and uplift our children, families, and communities.
Most community organizations target a specific issue in society and work towards minimizing one or more symptoms of that issue. We at True-Liif have decided to take aim at the disease, more specifically, the systemic and historical issues that perpetuate a continued cycle of neglect, oppression, discrimination, exclusion, and a lack of justice. For almost 10 years, we’ve mentored, educated, supported, and invested in Atlanta’s children, youth, and young adults in partnership with their families and advocates, to learn and lead the next generation in critical awareness and social change. We accomplish this, and more, through place-based learning, self-empowerment, and community building.
