THE YOUTH, OUR FUTURE
SEEN, BUT NOT HEARD
The community needs you now! Don't let another child become a "Throw-Away Kid." We
are losing most of our young people to countless stories of neglect and abuse. Every
year nearly 250,000 children are reported abused and neglected, and millions more go
unheard. Many of our children are already condemned long before they meet the pressures
of society. Instability in the home, poverty, lack of education, and locked doors to
growth opportunities drive children into the streets of drugs, sex, gangs, peer
pressure, illiteracy, poverty and prison sentences.
We need strong leaders with vision, belief,
and action operating for the future of the children and communities.
LAUNCH POINT CENTER

THE LAUNCH POINT CENTER is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization
chartered by the State of Texas and classified as a 501(c)(3) organization in 1993. It was created
in 1985 as a result of many in various communities who are concerned with seeking answers
to effect positive change amidst growing crime, drugs, poverty, illiteracy, and lack of
growth opportunities for youth and families.
Public parks, community centers, and schools have high numbers of volatile and
misdirected youth instead of youth with attitudes to excel. Our LAUNCH POINT organization
offers an array of fantastic programs that motivate young attitudes to grow. The programs lower the
number of youth who lack the willingness and confidence to excel.
To engage the community in visions for the collective whole and to build
the desire and capability to have control over its own destiny.
To add innovative leadership-building activities and practical high
performance fun and educational entertainment to the efforts of schools,
parks, youth clubs, and community organizations.
We promote events and help schools and community organizations
to do fundraising.
THE LAUNCH POINT CENTER offers a variety of free programs for youth and families, including:
Motivational Activity Seminars
Entertaining Educational Performance
Night Out Family Inspiration
Explorer Camps and Youth Achievement
Life Skills Boot Camp & Head Straight-Heart Talk
Fundraisers, Train the trainer, Follow-up Assistance
Custom-designed programs to meet your needs!
LAUNCH POINT is a mobile activity and motivation center that
enhances the efforts of schools, youth clubs, parks, camps, and
community organizations with a variety of positive programs.
If your organization is interested in opening an exciting chapter of
new and high performance learning activities that can assist your efforts in
empowering youth and families, call us at (832) 498-8782 or (281) 987-9362.
Each day a child is faced with deciding whether or not he or she
will participate in drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, sex, crime, violence,
gangs, and dropping out of school. We provide innovative activities,
motivation, and life lessons that help youth to make positive decisions
and act with better efforts to reach the goals of their school and
A CALL TO LEADERS
LAUNCH POINT seeks to assist other leaders challenged with vision to restore
the well-being of children, families, and communities - Leaders who would consider
being instrumental in major community projects, joint ventures, and events - Leaders
who would be willing to sponsor efforts with our young hopefuls in building tomorrow's
community and business leaders.
JOIN FORCES WITH US!
Our goal is to reach 1000 or more children every 6 months.
If you share this goal, we need computers, multimedia equipment, building supplies, activity space, buses, and
sponsorship from other community-minded groups and individuals like you!
By combining our resources, together we can defray the costs
of these educational programs for our youth. All donations are tax-deductible.
Let us work with you and every community
in Houston to reach these milestones!
