As today’s generation searches for purpose, meaning and value, many are experiencing a pervasive sense of emptiness and loneliness. These experiences can lead to multiple addictive behaviors that can cripple a family unit. However, studies have shown, once a person has been provided with the knowledge and tools, opportunities abound.
It is the goal of Enriching Lives to ensure the success of each participant. It is our desire that once a participant completes our course, and puts those principles learned to use, they will have the necessary tools to create more options in their own lives. As a result, they will now be able to face lifes challenges with a foundation rooted in success.

Watch Club is a school- and community-based yourh “watch” program initiative. The program allows youth to be more visible in schools and communities.
The Watch Club Initiative began at Warren Central High School (WCHS) in 2006. The goals of the program were to get youth involved in having a voice in their school and neighborhood and speak out about negative activities that impact the school and their community. Youth were trained in a 20-week curriculum that was led by a teacher trained in peer mediation, and focused on teaching the students conflict resolution skills. Participants would be encouraged to look for and report negative behaviors such as gun violence, substance abuse, bullying, gang involvement, and other crimes.
