Fredrick Douglas once said, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men”, an idea that I believe to the core of my heart. Children are so easily influenced, if put with the right caring people, their lives would be changed forever. My name is Ricardo Perry, the founder and director of Connections and You, Inc. (CYI). I believe that children need consistent, positive and influential people in their lives to effect change.
One of our biggest problems when it comes to our children is the lack of positive influence. CYI is here to be a solution to that problem. Truth is, the world is full of good, sound, and moral people. Imagine if each of these individuals connected with just one child. Also imagine that caring adult being there for them, encouraging them, helping them set goals and becoming successful. What would our world be like if that happened?
CYI has made it our mission to bring together positive adults with children in order to make our world better. Join us in this effort, contact us for more information. Children are a gift from God; it is our job to care for them. It will always take a village to raise a child, you my friend, are part of that village!
