Youth Matter Inc. is not just another non-profit organization, but an organization with a message and a mission. Youth Matter, Inc., also doing business as Youth Matter America, is a group of adults and youth dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of youth of all ages, regardless of race or creed, taking on the challenge to find solutions for problems that face them and their families, and not fearful of being the first to do something that needs to be done. Our focus is on at-risk youth and families.
In summary of our history, Youth Matter has engaged in several much needed program-related activities — we have created a lot of “First-time” Initiatives, with very little financial support to date, but through lots of hard work, in-kind contributions, and thousands of volunteer hours. We are constantly seeking out grant funds or sponsors to assist us with capacity building to be in a stronger position to continue to service the needs of America’s youth and their families.
Our goal is to develop our main operating programs into national programs to be developed in inner-city communities across America. We desire to offer these programs to other grassroots organizations to keep the youth off of the street while giving them positive alternatives.
