World Youth Foundation (EIN 760326601)

Briefly describe your mission.

Our mission is to “Teach All Youth How to Win in Life against All Odds.”

Who does your agency help?

Youth between the ages of 6-24 work closely with a breadth of business, education, community, and industry leaders in highly engaging and intellectually stimulating hands-on projects.

Why should a City of Houston employee give to your organization?

As community partners and donors continue to seek trusted diverse community partners that will help expand the skillset of our next-generation workforce; WYF is poised as a thought leader in the Out-of-School Time Mentoring space. WYF has been a stalwart in national youth development initiatives, to deliver strategies and actionable programs that will accelerate the production of impactful youth that have been in underrepresented communities in STEAM roles and beyond. While thirty 30+ years serving students and the community has been an amazing accomplishment; however, we are being called to do so much more. The needs for this next generation are greater than ever and prioritizing our youth first on the agenda is necessary if we are serious about creating best-in-class diverse talent and closing the gaps within the future workforce pipeline for women and socio-economically disadvantaged populations. The Covid pandemic showed the entire world just how important the hybrid workforce of tomorrow must be equipped with the digital tools to succeed. With Digital Transformation impacting everyday of this post pandemic society, we owe it to our students to partner with thought leaders such as yourself, to prepare them for the careers of tomorrow.

What is something unique about your agency?

We accomplish our mission by delivering free out-of-school time mentoring programs focused on increasing self-confidence and accelerating educational & professional skills for all youth belonging to groups that are underrepresented in the field of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM).

The World Youth Foundation focuses on the “whole child”, as we understand that in order for today’s youth to become successful in a highly competitive global economy; they must have more than education and knowledge.
