Founded in 2015, Direction Up is dedicated to transforming the lives of youth, "one bounce at a time”. Our mission is to encourage, empower and motivate youth from all walks of life to aim higher in every aspect of life. We want to remind youth that in everything, there is a choice. They can choose to respond negatively to circumstances, or they can choose to respond positively. Direction Up envisions a world with our youth making a choice to tap into the greatness that is already instilled in them.

Dedicated to transforming the lives of youth, one bounce at a time.
