Mission Statement

Notice: YQTA is currently in a reorganization phase to bring an even better experience to youth and constituents we serve. A date is not yet known, but the web site address will be accessible in early 2014. Volunteers are still welcome to make inquiries about potential service or the organization.

YQTA Mission

To restore, reclaim, redirect and reaffirm youth, parents and communities 1 in favor of sound faith-based decision making by cooperating with the Holy Spirit 2, our schools 3, and our government 4.

The YQTA Mission Defined

1 The four R's reflect a sad truth of a generation of youth that has been lost to misguided purpose and lack of purpose. Many times youth present a psychological expression of what is also systemic in parents and communities.

2 This loss or lack of purpose can be found again or discovered through a spiritual renewal through the God of the Bible by way of His Spirit whom the founding fathers of this nation respected, even as the most endearing laws of the land were penned.

3 A holistic view requires an additional step: education must be paramount in many respects - not simply grade school and college in-class learning, but through life learning and asset development outside the classroom. Our concept of helping youth become CHIEFF of their personal affairs covers C areer, H ealth, I ntegrity, E ducation, F inance and F amily.

4 In addition, we believe that engagement of youth, parents and communities in civic and political issues is an important ingredient for guiding younger generations toward better outcomes.
