Our Youth Development


Integral to the work of Today's Youth is a fundamental philosophy on youth development. These principles guide the work for everything that we do and hope to accomplish in the lives of today's youth.

  • All youth deserve to feel loved, valued, and capable of achieving their dreams.

  • Youth learn and retain information through interactive, hands-on activities that allow them to create, grow and express themselves openly.

  • A comprehensive curriculum that focuses on life skills, service- learning, and mentoring assists youth in strengthening their leadership and decision-making skills.

  • Youth need a structured environment of guidance & support.

  • Strong decision-making skills are essential for adolescent development into confident adults.
