Welcome to Investing In Our Youth!

Greetings, Friends!

We invite you to view our website to learn more about our programs and services. 2020 was a historically challenging year in our country and the world, and we know that now is the time to be resilient. IOY continues to reach out to families who live and work in Florida and Georgia to provide as much encouragement and support we can. Let’s continue to make 2021 the best year possible!

We want to extend a huge “Thank you” to our Program Volunteers for all you do to assist with community outreach and mentoring when needed. If you are interested in learning more about our programs… click HERE .

We hope you will be invigorated, and ultimately inspired to join us in our efforts to empower our families and communities.

OUR MISSION: IOY’s mission is to ensure youth and their families an opportunity to become self-sufficient, productive and secure citizens. We do this through providing programs that consciously and thoughtfully cultivate youth with power and information that will enable them to make good decisions and gracefully pass to adulthood. We believe these young people can accomplish great things, if given the opportunity and adequate resources.

OUR VISION: Investing In Our Youth’s vision is a picture of collaborative efforts with individuals and organizations assisting our citizens to fulfill their dreams and goals of prosperity and health, with dignity and respect, while exercising our rights and responsibilities to build and impact our community and the world.
