How We Began:
Today's Youth was formed out of a passion for empowering, educating, and preparing youth to enter adulthood with the tools to achieve their goals and accomplish more than they ever dreamed possible. After years of working with vulnerable youth and witnessing the confusion they had around issues such as decision making, goal setting, healthy relationships, sex, peer pressure, and low motivation, Founder and Executive Director Nicole Harris founded My Brother's & Sister's Restoration on December 19, 2005, in Atlanta, GA to address the many challenges of middle and high school youth in a realistic and personal way,
Nicole wanted to create an organization that spoke to youth in their language, provided activities they wanted to attend, and motivated them to think big, work hard, and push forward no matter what obstacles they faced. So, going beyond a place to hang out, Today's Youth was formed to give youth the tools to make good decisions, plan for their future, and believe in themselves. Rather than create a new space for youth, Nicole developed a nonprofit that partnered with other youth-serving organizations and schools to provide high-quality services.
After working with several nonprofits and churches in Atlanta, Georgia, Nicole moved to Houston, Texas, with her husband Ryan Harris in 2008. My Brother's & Sister's Restoration began operating under the name Today's Youth in May 2011. Since that time, Today's Youth has served hundreds of youth and worked with nonprofits throughout Houston.
We empower today's youth to be tomorrow's leaders through our hands-on activities, real-world discussions, and dynamic curriculum.
