Welcome to Investing In Our Youth!


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.

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.
