Changing the World One Child at a Time
OUR PURPOSE & MISSION
Project 16 is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Dallas, Texas and founded by Jade “Lady Jade” Burrowes. Our mission is to equip and inspire youth ages 13-17 to realize the broad spectrum of educational paths and career options available to them beyond what they may see in their immediate surroundings. We also provide free mental health services to our teens by Licensed Professional Counselors of Color via Kinnect Wellness.
Through our programs and community partnerships, we seek to offer up close access, eye-opening experiences and educational tools to help children and teens aspire higher than their circumstances, and to dream big.
