We are driven by a strong belief that everyone should have access to the resources and services they need. We believe that every individual deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their circumstances or situation.
We are committed to providing opportunities for young people to express themselves and explore their passions through arts and entertainment. Our programs and initiatives aim to empower youth to develop their talents, build confidence, and pursue their dreams.
But our work goes beyond just empowering individuals. We strive to create a sense of community and togetherness where everyone feels included and valued. We believe that we can build stronger and more resilient communities by fostering a culture of inclusivity and respect.
One of our strongest beliefs is the rejection of negativity and prejudice. We firmly believe in serving people without discrimination, treating everyone with kindness, dignity, and respect. By doing so, we build strong community relationships that enable us to further our mission for change.
Transparency and open communication are also vital to us. We believe in honesty and openness about our work, goals, and impact. Through this transparency, we can foster trust and collaboration with our community.
We are guided by a set of core values that define who we are and shape everything we do. These values are the foundation of our organization, helping us stay true to our mission and work towards our goals.
Dreaming big and working hard is at the heart of our approach. We believe that by setting ambitious goals and putting in the effort, we can make a real difference in the lives of youth, individuals, families, neighborhoods, and communities. We are committed to pushing ourselves to achieve greatness and never settling for mediocrity.
Finding and bridging the service gaps is another core value we hold dear. We recognize that there are often disparities and inequalities in access to essential resources and opportunities. We strive to identify these gaps and work towards closing them, ensuring everyone has a fair chance at success.
Driving change is a key aspect of our mission. We believe in challenging the status quo and pushing for positive societal transformation. We aim to create a better future for all by advocating for meaningful change.
Having fun is an integral part of our culture. We believe that joy and laughter are powerful tools for connection and growth. We strive to create an environment where everyone feels welcome and can enjoy the work we do together.
Being humble and gracious is a value we hold close to our hearts. We understand the importance of acknowledging our limitations and being grateful for the contributions of others. We approach our work humbly, knowing we can always learn and grow from those around us.
Transparency is a cornerstone of our organization. We believe in open and honest communication, both internally and externally. We strive to be transparent in our decision-making processes and share information with our stakeholders.
Going above and beyond is a value we embrace wholeheartedly. We believe in delivering the WOW factor in everything we do. We aim to exceed expectations and make a lasting impact on the lives of those we serve.
Encouraging others is a value that is deeply ingrained in our organization. We believe in supporting and uplifting one another, fostering a culture of collaboration and empowerment. We strive to be a source of inspiration and motivation for those we work with.
Giving back is a value that guides our actions. We believe in the importance of making a positive contribution to our communities. Through our work, we aim to create a culture of generosity and compassion where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
These core values are the compass that guides our organization's journey. They shape our decisions, actions, and interactions, ensuring that we stay true to our mission of promoting the economic and social well-being of youth, individuals, families, neighborhoods, and communities through arts and entertainment.
Helping families reduce stress which in turn helps reduce the likelihood of child abuse.
Our commitment to helping others is unwavering. We understand that life can present unexpected challenges, and we are here to lend a helping hand unconditionally. Whether it's providing educational resources to youth, supporting families in need, or fostering a sense of community within neighborhoods, we strive to make a positive impact whenever and wherever we can.
We firmly believe that the arts and entertainment play a crucial role in fostering personal growth, self-expression, and social cohesion. Through various programs and initiatives, we aim to create a culture that embraces every individual's diversity, prosperity, and integrity. By harnessing the power of creativity, we can inspire change and cultivate a society that values and celebrates its members' unique talents and perspectives.
We are beyond grateful as a family for blessing us with a bike and memories to last a lifetime.
I just want to say a huge thank you to Voices of Our Youth and Aaron Carter for helping me get Brutus. He is very comfy in his new home and I can't wait to love him and spoil him. Thank you so much!
I don't know how you knew, but you got everything myself and my son like. I appreciate you and your partner for this.
Since our foundation in November 2019, our organization has been committed to making a difference by addressing various issues using the universal language of arts and entertainment. We must think outside the box to create real change and approach challenges with creativity, compassion, and understanding.
One of our flagship initiatives, Voices of Hope Distributions, has been instrumental in supporting local families in need. Every week, we provide groceries, clothing, baby supplies, blankets, and more to those who require assistance. It is heartwarming to see our impact, as evidenced by our longest distribution line stretching over 5 miles!
When we first started Voices of Our Youth, we never imagined that our small community event would evolve into an organization with a profound impact on our community. Our journey began with an anti-bullying campaign, which quickly gained momentum and sparked a desire for more initiatives. Witnessing the enthusiasm and support from attendees, we knew we had to keep the momentum going, and that's how Voices of Our Youth was born.
Throughout our history, our primary goal has been to create positive change within our community. However, we cannot do it alone. We firmly believe that collaboration is crucial in achieving this goal. So, we collaborate with other like-minded organizations to continue our mission and expand our reach. Together, we can make an even greater impact and improve lives while creating a culture that embraces diversity, prosperity, and integrity, ensuring a brighter future for all.
At Voices of Our Youth, we believe in the strength of working together towards a common goal. Your encouragement, collaboration, and assistance have been instrumental in helping us make a positive impact in our community. Your belief in our mission has fueled our drive to strive for more and continue to expand our programs and services to meet the evolving needs of our community.
We are proud of our progress over the years, but we recognize that none of it would have been possible without the community’s support. Your generosity and belief in our cause have enabled us to create a culture that fosters positive change in our community.
Some people give because they want to help others. Some people give because it's their family or religious tradition. Some want to make their community a better place. But did you know that 85% of people give just because someone asked them to?
In addition to the health benefits, volunteering gives people a sense of purpose. The fulfilling feeling of giving back and contributing to society is unparalleled. Giving back is also a great way to get to know your community and its citizens. When you volunteer, you can meet lots of new people.
