This week we would like to introduce you to Trayon White, Executive Director of HICKS in Washington, D.C.
HICKS is the acronym for Helping Inner City Kids Succeed. The organization helps meet the needs of young people and their families with community based services. The core of HICKS is the belief that building core competencies, goal setting and executing a plan of action tailored to that youth’s personal circumstances will help improve the lives of at-risk young people.
Visit the HICKS site for more information or to donate to this worthy cause. HICKS is currently looking for sponsors for various projects including repairing a bus and buying uniforms.
