Young People Succeeding

Young people well prepared for their adult lives are essential for a community to thrive. Funded programs help children grow physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually into healthy, mature, and productive adults. They prepare youth to learn and work. They teach them to value education, effort, and achievement.
