Friends of Youth envisions all youth having every opportunity to succeed.
We partner with youth and families to provide the relationships, resources, and skills they need to attain personal growth and success.
Youth First - Equity - Collaboration
Relationships - Quality
Friends of Youth welcomes, honors, and celebrates our clients, colleagues and communities’ diverse identities, histories, knowledges, languages, and cultures. Our organizational values shape the way we work individually and collectively, as we prioritize young people’s belonging and achievement. We work to challenge, alter, and ultimately dismantle interconnected systems of structural and historic oppression. We collaborate with community stakeholders and partners to develop policy and decision-making frameworks that advance racial equity.
