Youth NOW is committed to engaging youth in a nurturing community where each individual can grow personally and academically through individualized programs that cultivate success.
By providing no-cost academic support to those that most need it, Youth N.O.W. helps our youth to thrive and in turn contribute to the success of their community.
The impact of distance learning on our vulnerable populations is leaving some students without the support necessary for them to succeed. Youth N.O.W. is addressing the inequity by adding more tutors and increasing virtual and on-site appointments for caring, trained adults (both paid and volunteers) to assist students 1:1 with academics.
We hope to prevent youth from falling behind in their learning during this challenging time. For 10 years we have been supporting students so they may gain confidence in school and in life, broaden their creative interests, and feel connected to a place of nurturance.
I am super grateful to Youth N.O.W. for being in my life and for always being supportive no matter which situation I am in. I hope that when I go to college I can say that 'Youth N.O.W. helped me in every way to be successful.'
