As a youth development nonprofit, we use year-round outdoor, arts, sports and a range of other engaging activities to afford students with enduring mentor-based relationships. We mix outdoor experiential learning, character development, community service, values-based leadership development, social justice advocacy, and peer mentoring to encourage our youth to transform themselves and others around them for the better.
OUR APPROACH: A systematic placement of “cool” adults who genuinely CARE and LISTEN to young people in order to prepare them to make ethical and moral choices throughout their lives.

Vasundhara Goyal is a financial professional and marketing consultant. She was valedictorian at her high school and now routinely tutors youth because she believes that education is key.
Vasundhara has extensive experience with leadership roles and teamwork so it is a major concern of hers to pass that on to our up and coming youth. She believes that if we arm the next generation with proper morals and accountability, they will be put into position to reach their full potential while becoming upstanding members of society.

Need to get away? Take a short road trip from DFW or Waco to the shores of Lake Whitney. You’ll find clear water, plenty of campsites, and a great place to relax with the family.
We offer water activities galore, from fishing and swimming to boating and skiing. On shore, you can explore the trails, see the stars, try geocaching, or set up camp.
A wide variety of wildlife lives in the park. Watch for deer, raccoons, snakes, armadillos and opossums. Wild turkeys and bald eagles have also been sighted here.
Fish for largemouth, striped and white bass, or bring home a prize blue catfish. Get detailed fishing and lake information for Lake Whitney.
The park has a boat ramp and a fish cleaning shelter. We also loan fishing gear for use in the park. You do not need a fishing license to fish from shore in a state park.
We hold an annual youth fishing tournament on the first Saturday in June.
Explore our trails, or get in your steps on park roads. All trails are open to hikers and bikers.
Making art builds children's self-esteem by giving them opportunities to express what they are thinking and feeling.
