Benefits of the Youth Development Initiative
The initiative ensures underprivileged youth have access to funds for tuition, textbooks and other expenses like room, board and transportation. Every year as a result we’re able to educate deserving young minds. Today, the Youth Development Initiative provides critical training to more than 2,000 young people worldwide.
Help us make this a reality!
The sponsors and donors of the Youth Development Initiative are very special to us. Ultimately, they are the very instruments of change who will one day break the cycle of poverty for good.
Get involved! Because of your $200 monthly sponsorship, a bright yet underprivileged young person will advance down the road toward professional leadership.
We send 100% of your tax-deductible contribution directly to needy students still awaiting sponsorship.
Also, with your monthly support, you will receive a package with the student's photograph and a brief personal biography.
The greatest reward of your sponsorship, however, will be the personal relationship you develop with the student through communication. Your correspondence with the student you sponsor will provide much-needed encouragement as they progress through the program. And your heart will overflow because of the difference you’ve made in the life of an exceptional student.
