Mission Statement

Our mission is to build a better and brighter global future for marginalized youth through education, awareness, and unity. Here at Better Future Program, we recognize that all forms of oppression are intrinsically interconnected, therefore our liberation is tied as well. All power to ALL the people. But for this to be possible, youth need access to revolutionary education, to not only learn about the systems actively working against them, but the dual power, the new structures, we are already innovating, together. It's easy to feel hopeless in these trying times but with the right tools, we can build an inclusive, informed, and intersectional future like no other.


Founded by Reagan Peters-Roussell (she/they), Better Future Program (BFP) is a 501(c)(3) youth-run nonprofit headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana, alternatively known as Bulbancha on Chahta Yakni and Chitimacha land. We envision a future in which youth are not only empowered to challenge oppressive hierarchies each day, but to create new, innovative, and inclusive frameworks of community care and intersectional justice.

Since 2016, our team has been dedicated to educating the masses on various academic subjects, mental health, and most importantly, social injustices that affect today's youth. We even offer over 3,000 free novels, movies, podcasts, and more just to fulfill this goal!

Through our outreach on Instagram, Tumblr, and now Twitter @bfpnola, BFP has gained an international community ranging from the U.K. to Brazil and even to Indonesia and Malaysia. We are so proud to call them our family.
