What We Do
Forward Youth is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that serves under-represented youth in the Wayne County, Michigan area. Our mission is to inspire young people to keep learning, keep growing, and to always move forward by providing free comprehensive afterschool programming. The Forward Youth After School program focuses on financial literacy, mentorship, and enrichment. The FYAS program is built around the social-emotional learning method and aims to keep youth safe and productive during after school hours.
- We specialize in making meaningful connections that benefit the community as a whole.
- For every child across the U.S. that is in an afterschool program, 2 are waiting to get in. We exist to help solve this problem.
- Our goal is to build an interconnected support system that adequately serves our students, schools, and communities.
