Our mission is to promote the economic and social well being of youth, individuals, families, neighborhoods, and communities through arts and entertainment while creating a culture that embraces the diversity, prosperity, and integrity of every human.

By “Core Values” we mean the principles that are at the center of everything we do. Having clearly defined Core Values helps us determine if we are on the right path to fulfilling our business goals.
These beliefs are the unwavering, unchanging standards by which we filter all our decision making and goal setting efforts. They are the attitudes and mindsets that we strive for. We understanding that if we fall short, at least we’re falling forward in the direction of attaining these values.
We believe in continually nurturing our creative minds and learning new concepts. We are determined to be open minded and explore new things.
We believe in always looking for ways to make things work or work better. Our creativity comes from thinking outside the box, to find solutions to complex problems. Therefore, so many love us! We don’t believe in failure so we will always figure it out!
We believe in being grateful and moving forward. Our drive supports our dreams and we work harder than most because we think is necessary to achieve our goals.
We don’t believe in criticizing, judging, or complaining. We are dedicated to developing an environment of encouragement, support, and gratitude.
We believe in going above and beyond what is expected. We strive for that “WOW” factor. We also believe in exceptional service because we understand that it’s better to give than receive. We believe that the best way to lead is through service, and the best form of marketing is a job well done.
We believe in making the workplace an enjoyable, exciting, enthusiastic, and enticing place to be. Though we are professionally driven and we work hard, we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
Not only do we embrace change, but we actively seek ways to drive change in order to build, evolve, adapt, and stay ahead of the curve. We are comfortable stepping outside the box, after all life begins outside your comfort zone.
We believe in transparency with our team and those we serve. We will always be direct, so we don’t leave room for miscommunications. We believe in collaboration and strive to build relationship that keep the lines of communication open.
We believe in treating people with kindness, dignity, and respect. Showing someone a little compassion and extending some kindness to those who need it can brighten a person’s day. We will always find a way to make it work or make it right; and believe that we aren’t any better than anyone else.
We believe in showing our gratitude by giving back to others intentionally and as often as we can. We understand that serving others isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. So, we believe in supporting other organizations that are committed to serving our community.
Voices of Our Youth was founded on November 05, 2019. Our working model is addressing issues through the universal language of arts and entertainment. To make a difference, we must be different than other organizations, which means thinking outside the box.
Since its inception, our organization has grown and developed upon its core beliefs of helping people and giving back. We do this through creativity, compassion, and understanding.
Our Voices of Hope Distributions help local families on a weekly basis. We provide them with groceries, clothing, baby supplies, blankets and much more. One of our longest distribution lines was over 5 miles long!
When we founded Voices of Our Youth, we had no idea that a small community event would turn into an organization whose passion has proven their commitment to the community. The name stems from an anti-bullying campaign we put together to address some bullying issues in our local schools. The event was such a huge success that attendees kept asking us when we were going to do another one. And Voices of Our Youth was born.
Throughout our history, we’ve worked toward a single purpose: making change within our community. We believe that no one organization can do it all, so we believe in collaborating with other likeminded organizations. Alone we can make a difference, but together we can change lives.
Over the years, the one thing that’s always stayed the same is our dedication to the bigger picture which will always drive us to strive for more. The unwavering dedication of our founders has helped our mission come to life. The words may have changed but the message has always been to empower others for the betterment of our community. Each year has been an opportunity for us to expand and rebrand our programs and services to meet the community’s needs.
We wouldn’t be who we are today without the assistance and support of those individuals who back us through encouragement, collaboration, and help to champion our mission.
Our team is dedicated to making change within our community. Each individual brings dedication, service, and compassion to the organization. They also bring their own strengths, unique experiences, backgrounds, personalities, and networks to the table to help us achieve our mission.
The importance of collaboration with your community and surrounding community. To get things done and to be able to reach so much more is to work together and leave the ego's behind. But to really make change you must be on the same page with the same heart.
Every person on this earth has a purpose, and though we may struggle at times Voices of Our Youth wants to be the beacon of hope that reminds every human that “You; Matter”.
