Wyman's Teen Outreach Program® (TOP®)

The Teen Outreach Program (TOP) promotes positive youth development through a social-emotional curriculum, community service learning, and supportive relationships with adults. Teens are empowered with the tools and opportunities needed to develop social-emotional skills, build healthy relationships and community connections, develop a sense of purpose, and avoid risky behaviors.

TOP is a 9-month program that serves teens ranging from 6th grade through 12th grade. Wyman directly delivers TOP to over 650 teens in the St. Louis area in partnership with the School District of University City and the Ferguson-Florissant School District. Nearly 30,000 teens are reached nationally through our National Network.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Wyman Leaders supports over 300 St. Louis teens annually to enter and complete college and career education programs, develop life and leadership skills, and create strong connections to their communities. Through powerful, transformative, and fun experiences, the program focuses on helping teens lead in their communities now, while preparing for a successful transition into young adulthood.

For 9 years from rising 9th graders through four years of postsecondary education our young people participate in intensive peer group experiences each summer, as well as consistent, individualized coaching and enrichment opportunities during the school year. This long-term engaging, empowering, and holistic experience supports teen development.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

The Teen Connection Project, Wyman's newest evidence-based program was developed through a research to practice partnership between Dr. Joseph Allen at the University of Virginia and Wyman. TCP is designed to improve peer relationships, social-emotional skills, school engagement, and well-being among high school aged youth.

TCP is a 12-14 week program and for 9th through 12th graders. Teens meet in small groups weekly and use a guided curriculum to build positive relationships with peers and adults, and then share what they have learned within their schools, homes, and communities.

In 2023, Wyman directly delivered TCP to over 100 teens. TCP is also replicated through our National Network.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Equity strategies

Last updated: 10/05/2022

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
