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.
Dewuan X. Davis is a published children’s author and full-time dad. He moonlights as a Mobile Application Developer but his real passion lies with the youth surrounding him. Dewuan believes that in order to create a brighter future, we must begin with the children because they ARE the future. With his caring nature, Dewuan has always taken time to volunteer with youth movements, coach, and mentor. He is also a standing board member of the PTA at his children’s elementary school.
Teesa Wallace has worked in Childcare for over 8 years with significant experience in planning, implementing and assessing child development through the use of creative curriculum and activities. She carries proudly her Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential.
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.

Escape the bustle of the city and get back to nature just an hour north of the DFW Metroplex. Come play at Ray Roberts Lake State Park for the day or the weekend!
On land, you can camp, hike, bike, ride your horse, rollerblade, geocache or go backpacking. On the water, you can swim at one of our beach areas (no lifeguards on duty), paddle, or wet a hook in our kids’ fishing pond or the lake. Or enjoy quieter pursuits: photography, nature watching, or simply relaxing!
Fish the 29,000-acre Ray Roberts Lake. Anglers catch largemouth bass, crappie, white bass and catfish here. The current lake record for largemouth bass is 14.07 pounds. We have boat ramps, a marina, a fishing pier and fish cleaning stations. Remember, you can fish from the shore or a pier in a state park without a fishing license!
Explore our trails. The 20-mile multiuse Greenbelt Corridor runs from the Ray Roberts Dam to Lake Lewisville, along the Elm Fork Branch of the Trinity River. Horse riders can use 12 miles of the trail, while 10 miles are for hike and bike use only. Johnson Branch and Isle du Bois have multiuse trails, some of which are paved.
Making art builds children's self-esteem by giving them opportunities to express what they are thinking and feeling.
