There is a need for effective after-school/ out-of-school programs that bring about change in our communities. Studies state that youth development builds resilient communities where our kids are surrounded by adult support. The idea is that resilient communities will have the capacity to support young people in times of need to avoid some of the tragic incidents that have plagued our nation recently. In addition, creating communities where children are encouraged to be engaged allows them to adapt to and overcome adversities overall. By developing positive relationships with adults in the community, our youth will value the community along with the relationships they have developed.
TeachThemYoungER Inc. is a 501(c)(3) youth organization dedicated to bringing communities together to focus on the success of our children. Utilizing arts and athletics as vehicles for positive development of student-athletes, improving relationship skills, and advancement of their growth mindset. Our programs are a cooperative effort with parents, the business community, and neighborhood residents to provide a “community –support team” so that every child can be successful, now and in the future. We believe becoming partners with local businesses is a wonderful way to become even more involved in the community.
Thank you for helping our cause. It truly takes a village to raise a child. Thank you for being a part of our TeachThemYoungER Village!
