The Young Journey Foundation is a non-profit organization that builds a diverse community of youth worldwide through customized performing arts and technology programs to help them understand, value and appreciate education and other cultures.
Young Journey builds a diverse community of youth through arts and tech programs to help them relate to other cultures and be prepared for the workforce.
Through very fun experiences, youth develop good communication skills with all people.
We create customized arts and technology programs to explore career paths. Young Journey includes youth from all backgrounds and cultures.
Our current target market is the Greater New York City and Central Texas Areas with a strong focus on less advantaged populations who are especially at risk.
Those who participate in our programs are more confident believing they can succeed in life. They gain a value for education and other cultures.
I have been looking for awhile to get involed with a youth volunteer program. Although I grew up in a great home with a wonderful family back ground. I always seem to wonder what or how or who would I be if I didn't. I often see kids on the streets that come from broken homes and my heart goes out to them. Sometimes I speak, just to start small talk, to find out how theirs live have been and how can I change the bad to good in their lives. I find that a great deal of them are very smart and know to some degree what they want to do in life. But I also find that there is no support in their homes or in theirs live at all to give them that push. Thats where I feel that I come in. I find that a lot of them that I speak with have no fathers. I grew up all my life without mine, so I can truly feel their pain. I want to be that example to them, to show them that life goes on, and although we are our fathers childen we are not their choices. but we still can have life and live it.
