The vision: a community-based organization focused on connecting youth to their place and people of origin, leading to a movement of empowering youth through the arts and cultural discovery. With a community of dedicated members, this movement is begining NOW!
We Are ROYALTI-Reaching Our Youth As Leaders Thinkers and Intellects
ROYALTI, a California public charity, empowers youth through the arts and cultural discovery by offerring dna testing to identify lineage. We believe knowing your cultural background can be a driving force, as well as pivitol turning point, which inspiries youth to grow into their full potential. Incorporated in 2011, our plan to offer retreats for youth ages 9-17, by summer 2012, has fallen short. Without a strategic plan in place, an appointed board-of-directors, and active staff members, activities remain on hold. Our hope, through this fundraising platform, is to have in place, our five year strategic plan, an appointed board-of-directors, qualified hired staff, and year-end event detailing our 2014 retreat schedule.
Our goal of $, breaks down in the follwing categories:
Legal Zoom 501(c)(3) application=$500
Business Consultation =$400
African Ancestry DNA Kits (20)@$274 ea=$5480
Strategic Planning Retreat=$2000
Staff Training & Materials=$2500
End-of-Year Fundraiser Event=$5300
We are in a time where our young people need us like never before. Help us Reach Our Youth As Leaders, Thinkers, and Intellects. Establishing a connection with youth through the love of culture AND art may evoke life-long effects which they will carry throughout their lives. Providing support, in a nutring and caring surrounding, our message of self-awareness and power within, will produce seeds of self-resiliency where needed.
JOIN US IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
Our goal of partnering with evidence-based practicing organizations will keep ROYALTI on target for growth in California. We look forward to partnering with organizations in Louisiana, Illinois, Philadelphia and New York by end of 2015!
