LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS. -A Little Rock native wants to give children who face adversity the GREEN LIGHT TO BE GREAT.

Better Start Foundation is that green light to be great for children and youth living in low-income communities. Better Start Foundation offers a personalized youth development model with a promise to connect children with everything they need to succeed in school, career, and life. The foundation makes an 11-year commitment to the child that starts in the 2nd grade and transitions into an Alumni program upon high school graduation.

We develop the whole child significantly increasing their chances of reaching their full potential. We want people to join us in creating more rags to riches stories here in Arkansas.

Better Start Foundations plans to get things started this summer by hosting several youth development seminars at the Sue Cowan Williams Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, and then launch a pilot site in the Little Rock School District of its program in the fall of 2019.

Better Start Foundation is calling on the community at large to help support this cause by becoming a monthly donor. To become apart of the green light movement contact Raymond Omar Long at raymond.long@betterstartfoundation.org and tune in to our social media pages for updates
