Mission & History

We exist to make a difference through education and engagement of community members to exact change in our arena of influence. Our efforts will result in a better world.

We were founded out of a need to raise awareness for voices not heard. We have continued to make a difference with the help of our donors and volunteers that make our mission possible. Through all these years our purpose remains the same: advocate change through action.

Youth Reclamation, Inc. (YRI) provides character development programs for the youth community.

We empower kids to change their lifeā€¦one choice at a time, by teaching them how to increase their emotional intelligence.

Our programs focus on the challenges kids face today such as school violence, learning difficulties, achievement gaps, boredom, apathy, illiteracy, drug use, and bullying, just to name a few.

Our curriculums facilitateĀ a deeper learning of life changing principles and concepts which can be applied in everyday life, leading to higher respect for themselves and others; a stronger commitment to goal-oriented processes (such as the benefits of graduation and higher job performance ratings); a deeper understanding of their own identity; and greater control of social pressures surrounding the latest styles and technology trends; and so much more.
