The DANNY Center Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that serves as a centralized resource
for the community. It is comprised of a diverse group of individuals from various ethnic groups and backgrounds. We have a common goal which is to enrich the lives of the youth in our community. To serve as facilitators that provide education, career, and recreational opportunities for all youth who can benefit from them. When these programs do not exist in your area, we will collaborate with other nonprofit organizations within the community to offer them to our youth or we will create them ourselves.

ASPIRE (Seek; Pursue; Ambitious; Determined)
Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity. Yet one in three young people will grow up without this critical asset. click for more info
