Our Mission

To empower our youth through education to achieve excellence and success in their lives, to inspire and prepare them to become future leaders of their communities, and to teach them how to work together to create positive change in their lives and in the world.

Our Vision & Goal

To cultivate a new generation of leaders and engaged citizens, empowered with a sense of purpose and responsibility, and committed to working together to create positive change in our society and the world. 

Our Philosophy

For over 20 years, our organization has worked to create opportunities for diverse youths to achieve success and create positive change in their communities. At the Young Center, we believe that young people are our future leaders. And so, we empower our youth with the critical knowledge, skills and guidance they will need to succeed.

Education

We believe that education is a powerful tool that can transform lives and help level the playing field in society.

Moral Character

We believe that moral character development is foundational and should be part of every child's educational experience.

Service

We believe that service is a moral obligation for every person, in order to make the world more equitable and inclusive.

Equity

We believe that no child, regardless of difference, should be denied the opportunity to realize his or her full potential for success in life.

“If we expect our youth to become the future leaders of our society, we must begin now to prepare them for that purpose and provide them with opportunities to lead.”
