For over 40 years, PRO Youth & Families has been engaging and connecting youth with opportunities that inspire hope. Our various youth empowerment and wellness programs are offered in schools and community-based settings. 

We inspire hope through three areas of work:  

  1. Youth Voice 
  2. Wellness  
  3. Collective Impact 

PRO creates spaces for young people to discover who they are, explore topics that impact their daily lives, cultivate skills, and develop into leaders and change-agents for their communities. 

Mission

Mission and Vision: Our mission is to inspire, educate, and mobilize young people to build a healthier future for themselves, their families, and their communities.

We envision a future where youth recognize their value, have access to support and opportunities, and believe in their ability to make change.

Needs

PRO Youth & Families exists to inspire, educate, and mobilize youth to build healthier futures for themselves, their families, and their communities. For over 40 years, we have been engaging and connecting youth with opportunities that inspire HOPE.

In 2023, we served over 3,000 youth - empowering them with the knowledge, skills, and tools to help them build a healthier life. Many of these youth went through our mental wellness training. Our biggest need is for funds to scale and grow our programming so we can serve a greater number of youth in the coming year.

Partner with us this Big Day of Giving, as we continue to create safe spaces where youth can:

- Receive knowledge and tools to improve their health

- Explore topics that help them have healthier relationships

- Develop into leaders and change- agents for their communities.

Equity Statement

PRO Youth & Families commits to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the programs we run, the communities we serve, and within our organization:

We commit to providing opportunities for continuous learning and growth for our staff and leadership on the history and impact of racism, white supremacy, systemic oppression and cultural competence in order to create a culture of accountability within our organization.

- We commit to the continuous creation of sustainable opportunities to empower youth of color to leverage and advocate for policy changes that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion.

- We commit to hiring staff, leadership and board of directors of racial and ethnic diversity to better represent the populations we seek to serve.

- We commit to using PRO’s resources to leverage the capacity of organizations and leaders that represent and address the needs of disenfranchised and vulnerable populations.

- We commit to not be complicit to and profit from the systems that perpetuate racial inequality.

We will strive to leave an eternal positive fingerprint on this community, and aspire to leave a lasting ripple effect in the lives of the youth we serve and lead. Our values will place us on the right side of social justice, we will be found on the right side of history, and we will be an example to future generations through our values and actions, not just our words.
