The majority of our programs are gender and mentor focused and include a variety of research based, age, and gender appropriate activities. They are incorporated into a comprehensive life skills development curriculum implemented through a workshop and seminar methodology held at schools, after-school, during summer and spring breaks, and at regularly scheduled events including youth expos and camps. Although girls are America's Time Out for Youth's primary focus we also have programs that incorporate boys such as our RAPsnergySM and College Essentials programs. All programs are conducted and taught by motivated, talented and credentialed professionals in fun-filled, nurturing and safe environments. Our mentoring partners include corporate and community leaders, peer leaders and parents; performing, visual and literary artists, athletes, authors, coaches and educators. These caring and concerned stakeholders impart time, talent, wisdom, and monetary gifts to help provide youth with strategies that empower them to know how to think critically and make wise choices in life. Ultimately, they learn to make the most of life's challenges and opportunities.

Pearls of Women Agenda
GADA highlights awareness and prevention of domestic violence through education. Through education girls and young women are taught, whether it be emotionally, sexually, physically, financially or otherwise that it is never ok to be abused. Through learning about healthy relationships, and having healthy self-esteem, girls and young women are better able to understand domestic abuse, advocate against such abuses, taught to advocate for themselves, recognize the signs of abuse, and to never let abuse silence them. And, most important, when and where to seek help.
AMERICA'S TIME OUT FOR YOUTH
Professional women mentors use their time, talents resources, and wisdom to mentor and empower girls and young women for a lifetime.
