Young Generation Movement was founded on the belief that all young people, regardless of their backgrounds or the challenges they face, have the desire, talents and potential to be participating citizens. We seek to enhance the lives of “at-risk” teenagers through voluntary programs. Our goal is to decrease violence and provide a safe environment for at-risk youth to challenge themselves and their limiting beliefs through mentoring and outdoor experiences.
Our programs are developed to motivate and support the youth by instilling confidence and strength and developing new perspectives .We strive to create the opportunities that will encourage children to achieve their full potential.
We focus on Community Outreach, Anti-Violence, Personal Development along with Health and Wellness. Some of our programs include Summer Leadership Camp, Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway, Christmas toy drive with distribution, back to school giveaway, community cleanups, Senior Citizen Outreach, Healthy Cooking classes, feeding the homeless and our Pants Up Guns Down campaign. Also, members attend art and history museums, take college and history tours, participate in art classes and many other fun and educational activities. See below for all our current programs.
