A 33 Year History


Started in 1991 by seven friends who decided to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for about 20 friends, many of whom were local educators. We were friends because of the leadership of Daisy Jackson, an educator who challenged her circle of friends to meet on Fridays to discuss current events topics and the empowerment of youths. Sadly, one Friday as we gathered we loss our dear friend to a medical emergency. At the time she was spearheading the start of a tutorial program which we immediately adopted. Today we embrace her wisdom and dedication to youths in Northern Delaware.
