America's Time Our for Youth is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization founded in 1998 by a Board of Directors that believe that all youth deserve the opportunity to reach their fullest potential in life. We empower youth, particularly girls ages 6 -18 to become healthy, confident, productive, strong and wise through our educational programs, activities and experiences. Being healthy and physically fit, emotionally and academically sound, culturally and socially aware provides youth with the knowledge to make positive choices. Further, giving youth opportunities to express themselves creatively, as well as, intellectually is not only fundamental to their growth and development; it is crucial in helping to combat the problems and challenges they face. Through our mentor focused programs we promote confidence, knowledge building, and opportunities that prepare and inspire youth to embark upon paths that lead them to become our next generation of leaders and the architects of their own lives.
"Do not go where the path leads, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Train them up in the way they should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it."
Proverbs 22, 6
