The Youth In Action Community Outreach's primary goal is to educate the underserved and at-risk youth; offering them the expanded advantages of full participation in our society, which can only be achieved after elevating their self-esteem and their scholastic levels. It is our goal to assist children at risk of all races, to develop a positive self-image, set realistic yet significant goals and benefit from first hand experiences in positive social relationships.
It is our opinion that any child that grows up in this world is “at-risk” in some way or another; however, Youth in Action will focus more heavily on youth effected by mental health issues, violence, disability, substance abuse, homelessness, HIV/AIDS, teen pregnancy, and youth involved in juvenile justice. It is our understanding that at-risk youth may identify as any gender and any race. Each group has a different area where they are more at-risk, but they are all youth at-risk.
