There is little doubt that the issues plaguing inner-city youth are the direct and indirect results of Racism, Institutional Failure, and Parental Neglect—referred to as RIP. We refer to these problems as RIP because, collectively, they are main contributors to the psychological, spiritual, physical and social death of black and Latino youth. 

James Baldwin’s profound assessment of the crisis sums it up best:

            The limits of your ambition were…expected to be set forever. You were born into a society which spelled out with brutal clarity, and in as many ways              as possible, that you were a worthless human being. You were not expected to aspire to excellence: you were expected to make peace with                               mediocrity.

In response to this harsh reality, FromTheCorner, Inc. was established to provide adolescents, young adults, parents and educators with the tools necessary to neutralize RIP before it stifles progress, leaving those who fall victim to it marginalized and bound to continue a cycle of self-destruction that endures for generations. 

We focus on self-development, cultural awareness and intellectual enrichment as a way to embrace and enhance your positive attributes. 

Still, the ultimate goal is about more than just teaching and learning: it’s about living a lifestyle that takes our youth From the Corner—whether that be physically, mentally or both—to the Corner Office. FromTheCorner, Inc. has made an unwavering commitment to this principle and it will revolutionize the plight of urban youth in America.
