WHAT IS A MODERN DAY ORPHAN?
A Forgotten Generation...

These young people are in orphanages and group homes and have the ominous task of growing up with no family; no forever home. We desire to see students that society calls 'at-risk' become powerful leaders and positive influences. Excellerate is an Educational Life Skills Program that Serves Teenage Foster Care Children. Excellerate provides these young people a chance at a great life through mentoring, instruction and empowerment.

Jennifer's Story

Growing up I struggled with many things. Anger, trusting people. The drugs I used erased the pain. All I wanted was someone to care about me. After I joined Excellerate, I learned how to forgive and trust people again. I know that people truly love me. Now I desire to help other people. I want to open up a maternity home for pregnant ladies.
