Leadership Team

Tina Carpenter
Chief Executive Officer

Since 2004, we have welcomed thousands of young people through our blue doors. Our dream to strengthen the communities in Southern Illinois where all youth have a place to become is becoming a reality. In these places, youth find mentors, tutors, role models, and friends that will help them learn, grow and develop in ways that will help them succeed in school, community, and in life. Everyday, we are ‘someone’s hero’. You can become a part of this journey, to raise a generation of youth who will change the culture of the communities, for generations to come – help us be the change.
