Who We Are:
Founded in 2015
The One Through the One is a foundation determined to unlock the God-given talent of the youth of our community. In addition to providing workshops to the children, our goal is to reset their mindset through the teaching of morals, learning the value of life, leadership, and how to be a productive citizen in their community.
In addition to proving support for the child, we also attempt to connect their families with the vital resources that will help their child excel inside and outside of the classroom.
The One Through the One program is open to boys and girls, and is an all-around opportunity to set the youth on an excellent trajectory into the future.
Our founder Curtis “Flex” Watts is a life long resident and long time barber shop owner in the community of Hempstead, New York. In addition to dealing with the youth at work on a daily basis, he began to take note of the diminishing attention to the communities youth.
“I saw a great need for our youth to be taught the basics of life. Running for school board twice and seeing our graduation rate continuously drop had an affect on me.”
Mr. Watts created this program with a a curriculum that focuses on self-development, self management, social awareness, relationship building, and more.
Although children are schooled through the age of 18, these intangible skills often go by the wayside in the school’s curriculum, and the One Through The One program is here to fill in those gaps.
