Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We envision a world in which every young person belongs to a nurturing community.

INNOVATIVE EVIDENCE-BASED PROGRAMS
VYH will provide high quality, innovative programming so all youth we serve will have a sustainable connection to a nurturing community in order to achieve their goals.
VALUED EMPLOYEES
VYH will employ a diverse team of highly engaged, highly skilled individuals who are committed to the mission and valued by the organization.
FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY
VYH will continue to be financially sustainable. A minimum of 25% of operating budget will come from endowment income and non-governmental sources,
allowing VYH the financial flexibility to make mission-based program decisions.
REGIONAL & NATIONAL IMPACT
VYH will have a direct service presence in the mid-Atlantic region and be a national leader in systems and program design.
ADVOCATE FOR YOUTH
VYH will be a voice for the unmet needs for children, youth and families. Particular focus will be on child welfare, child abuse, youth homelessness, and mental health.
