About Us

EN-RICH-MENT is a safe haven for youth who come from diverse backgrounds. Programs offered provide an outlet for youth to express their needs and concerns. 

 

Yearly, EN-RICH-MENT touches the lives of over 200 youth. Through classes and special events. Students learn about healthy lifestyles, anti-bullying, and other topics from guest speakers WHO donate their time to the program. 

During the Summer(June-July), a free, five week fine arts camp is offered.
