YWAF serves urban students. Many of our students come from single parent or no-parent households. YWAF seeks to reach young people who may be experiencing personal hardships and help them discover a new sense of hope and purpose. We work to empower them with the knowledge, skills, and technological tools they can depend on to become leaders in their homes and communities.
A focus of our program is to connect with schools and organizations within the community. By partnering with organizations, we are able to utilize our partnership to influence the middle and high school students and begin ongoing 8 Core Value leadership training with the student. Here are a few thoughts and perspectives that students and their facilitators wish to share about a recent YWAF Leadership Workshop experience . . .
As we move towards an age of rapid development and technological progress, we have the monumental responsibility of passing on the right values to future generations. This means doing more than just sending children to school and paying for their tuition. It means doing everything in our power to help them inculcate the principles of leadership, so they may navigate the labyrinth of life freely and independently. The fate of this world depends on the leaders of tomorrow. Youth with a Future enables young people to be the leaders that this world needs. This is why we invite your children to join our urban youth leadership development. Our personality development and empowerment programs are designed to help them realize their true potential—giving them a chance to truly amaze themselves.
