Children are the future.  Cliché—yes; however, clichés are what they are because within them you usually find some truth.  Children are the future and for that reason, it is important to guide them in the right direction.  The river parishes are home to many children who are in need of guidance.  Without some sort of guidance, these children are left to their own devices and as we know, an idle mind is the devil’s playground.  Thoughts Before Action was established with the goal of providing children—not only from St. John Parish but eventually all across the State of Louisiana—with guidance to ensure a bright future for them and the rest of society. 

   Thoughts Before Actions (“TBA”) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing various programs to elementary, middle, and high school students in Louisiana.  TBA was developed as an organization dedicated to providing a nurturing, safe, environment for the youth of our community to learn life skills.  Children will learn


  • How to foster strong healthy relationships with others, or enhance healthy relationships;

  • How to develop interpersonal skills;

  • How to redirect the thought process to instill change in their behavior.


   Through mentorship and guidance, our youth will learn to be more responsible, make better decisions, and ultimately learn to be productive members of society.  By instilling these skills into the children and exposing them to positive guidance they will have greater incentive to remain on a path that will lead to a productive adulthood.  In essence, we are trying to ensure that these students are ready for the world.

“We fail to say the right words, because we choose to say the wrong words! We choose to say the wrong words, because we fail to think about the right words!”
― Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Our Vision

TBA will focus on the good that happens in the world, while at the same time empowering youth to handle the bad. We will shine a light on the positive aspects of today’s culture, and remind the youth of their opportunities and options. We will empower them to recognize the greatness that lies on the inside, and remind them that in every situation there are choices. We will reiterate the importance of choosing wisely, and ask them to always Think Before Acting.
