The vision of Unlocking Futures is to break the cycle of poverty, exclusion and endemic adversity for youth and young adults from underfunded and underserved communities. Our mission is to transform the outlook of high school students from one of closed doors to one of possibility, through coaching and mentoring, and to include parents and family members in the transformation
Unlocking Futures, formally known as Youth at Risk is a not-for-profit, volunteer driven organization committed to transforming the chaotic lives of young people through persistent and compassionate mentoring. Since 1985, Unlocking futures has helped HS students make college an option: we take them from failing grades to passing grades; and/or passing grades to top grades. We give them tools to win in life such as a Goal-directed focus and Shift at-risk behaviors to responsible behaviors
