Our vision is to champion opportunities that give youth positive life experiences, valuable knowledge, and access to information from which to make constructive choices that inspire, empower, and enrich the quality of their lives now and in the future. Further, that all youth will possess essential qualities that promote social values such as kindness, helpfulness, personal and civic responsibility and respect for self and others.
Youth are our most precious asset and are the future of this great country. We have an obligation to provide them with the insight they need to realize their dreams and reach their highest potential. If this is to transpire, we must give them the guidance they need to lead successful, healthy, productive lives; and the knowledge to exercise wisdom in their decision making.
Our own first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, stated while on the Thank You Tour, speaking at the Department of Education in Washington D.C.; "We have to remember that the children of this country are counting on all of us. They are looking to us for direction." America's Time Out for Youth whole heartedly agree that we must come together and collectively help and support America's youth.
We encourage you to mentor and take time out to give underserved youth the benefit of your wisdom and positive influence. If you are concerned about the negative statistics surrounding the lives of too many of today's youth, and would like to help them establish or maintain a strong set of core values and beliefs, then America's Time Out for Youth needs your help. We invite you to join us in our endeavors and give of your time, talents, and resources. I assure you it will be a worthwhile experience for both you and the children.
"Together, we can empower youth for a lifetime."
