You Can Make A Difference In the Lives of Youth In the Tri-State Area


Leader. Volunteer. Visionary. These three words describe the person who we all want leading our communities, teaching our children, and reaching out to those in need. These three words also describe the documented changes in young people ages 5 to 18 who participate in Youth Resources evidence-based programs.

Youth Resources' impact over each of the past 25 years has stimulated a leadership movement of youth and adults in our community to collaborate in identifying needs through the eyes of these young people. Participation in community service through Youth Resources raises awareness and interest in volunteerism, encourages youth and adult partnerships, and enriches the lives of local citizens in need who benefit from these youth-led projects. These young leaders need your help to continue making the Teen Advisory Council, TEENPOWER, Teen Court, and Make A Difference Grants programs available to them. Please join others in growing new generations of philanthropists and lifelong activists by investing in our community's young leaders and sending a financial gift today.

Have you considered joining Youth Resources’ Kincaid-Cooper Legacy Society by including Youth Resources in your financial or estate planning? Leaving a charitable gift from your will or estate extends your support, and there are many vehicles by which you can make a gift for the benefit of the organization. A bequest of any size (no amount is too small) in your will can be a fairly simple way to leave a legacy for the organization.
