Founder Cassandra Prear

 ‘I am North Tulsa’

For over 30 years I have worked with youth behind the scenes. The many challenges our youth and families struggle with I knew I had to bring our Mission to the forefront because it takes a village to make this vision successful. I aim to shift mindsets and restore hope in our community.

  I am determined to live the rest of my life pouring my heart and my soul into the youth of North Tulsa and its surrounding areas. I will continue to achieve my purpose through love, encouragement, education, inner wellness, inspiration, and nourishment one teen girl at a time.
