Mission Statement

Movement of Youth prepares youth to lead and succeed in the 21st Century by engaging, enriching, and empowering them through mentoring and targeted programming.

Description

Movement of Youth is a comprehensive educational and mentoring program built to expand educational opportunities for diverse middle and high school students in the Triangle. Targeting only 11 students in 2006, Movement of Youth has grown to impact over 200 students annually.

Movement of Youth encourages diverse high school students, who have demonstrated academic promise, to pursue higher education. Primarily administered at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the program is designed to enhance academic performance, develop strong interpersonal skills, build leadership skills, and establish a positive support network -- all to assist students in their desire for higher education.

Movement of Youth provides a number of enrichment activities for students, including Saturday Academy, Team Mentoring, College Tours, SAT Prep, Summer Enrichment Academy, and Community Leadership Projects. Through this dynamic design, participants receive intellectually challenging programming, positive role models to help set long-term aspirations as well as the mentoring support required to nurture and fulfill those aspirations.

Rising Seventh- through Eleventh-graders can apply to the program. In order to be eligible for participation, students must possess a recommended GPA of 2.0 or above. Upon successful completion of an application process, students gain admission to the program. Overtime, Movement of Youth will create a learning environment that will be an invaluable resource to young people, aspiring mentors and the community at large. We are committed to educational excellence and equal access for all students. Our investment in diverse students today is an investment in America’s future.
