Y.O.U. partners with families, schools and the community to provide academic, social and emotional support to close the opportunity gap and prepare all youth for post-secondary and life success. Our work is consistently guided by our deepest shared beliefs.
- We believe all youth are capable of high levels of academic, social and emotional success. We strive to expand their sense of what’s possible and help them realize their fullest potential.
- We build meaningful, trusting relationships. We collaborate with our partners, friends, families and one another to provide equitable opportunities for youth.
- We are committed to ongoing learning for youth and our organization. We are never idle or satisfied and believe that ongoing adaptation and improvement is essential to personal and organizational success.
- We embrace diversity and treat all people with respect and dignity. We are inclusive and supportive of all identities, and seek to understand and address systemic injustices in our communities.
