Description

Youth have vastly different opportunity sets based on their income, race, culture, gender identity, and sexual orientation. These gaps in opportunity prevent many youth from realizing their fullest potential.

We utilize three strategies — Advance, Build, and Catalyze — to close this opportunity gap and prepare youth for post-secondary and life success. Across these strategies, we seek to build deep, caring relationships with youth, their families, and the community institutions around them.  For all youth, Y.O.U. provides both academic support and enrichment programming. Academic support includes support with independent learning assignments, tutoring, goal setting, and social-emotional check-ins. Current enrichment programming includes a focus on team building, literacy, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), and social justice. All of our clinical and outreach services, including counseling, case management, and our 24/7 youth housing hotline, have continued without interruption, primarily through virtual and telehealth models.

If you are under 22 and experiencing a housing-related crisis, please call 847.866.1200 x 1
