About Youth of Honor: Drugs are finding their way into the hands of younger kids, while the older youth are many times choosing a life of crime as a quick fix to success. Our court systems and youth detention centers are overflowing with activities while our classrooms and playgrounds turn into places of inactivity. The spiral cycle of negative activities is winning while society loses an entire generation of future leaders. The Youth of Honor Foundation was established in July of 2006 to change this cycle and assist youth in making a difference in their own lives.
The Youth of Honor Foundation will partner with individuals, corporations and local/state juvenile detention centers to reach out to our delinquent youth and assist them in achieving their dreams. Inside each troubled youth is a young person with the potential to make a difference. This light in the darkness is just waiting to be found and harnessed.
