Mission Statement

TerraLucent is a public charitable nonprofit organization striving to create a better world and bright future for "disconnected" and marginalized young adults and at-risk youth. Our mission is to empower young people by offering multifaceted solutions to the challenges faced by today's youth and empowering them to be catalysts for positive change in their communities and the world.

At the heart of TerraLucent is the understanding that the youth of today will play a vital role in creating a healthy and ecologically sustainable world. Through our innovative programs that inspire and empower young people to be the leaders of tomorrow, TerraLucent is committed to the success of young adults and at-risk youth through programs that assist young people in opening the doors to a better world for themselves, their communities, and the world.

In our rapidly changing world, communities must adapt and develop new paradigms of living by transitioning to ecological sustainability, self-sufficiency and resilience. TerraLucent understands that these transitions are best implemented through whole systems solutions that focus on the health and well-being of the whole person, personal empowerment, sustainable and local food production, renewable energy, strengthening local economies, and ecological restoration.

TerraLucent actively works towards the transition of communities to sustainability and self-sufficiency, while at the same time, we take one step beyond sustainability by engaging and empowering disconnected and marginalized youth in this effort and offering them the knowledge, training, and guidance in various aspects of leadership, green entrepreneurship, and the transitioning of communities to sustainability. This strategy offers the greatest hope for young people in need of alternatives and guidance, and in turn, becomes a great opportunity for their communities and the world as they continue on in their education, launch green entrepreneurship ventures, and become leaders in their communities and the world.

Beyond integrating whole systems solutions for communities into our youth programs, TerraLucent also mentors disconnected and at-risk youth, giving them the life skills necessary to be self-reliant, healthy and constructively productive in the world today. Through these programs TerraLucent empowers disconnected youth to live up to their full potential and to be beacons of hope and inspiration for others to follow.
