Our Mission

The mission of Educate Youth is to provide programming for Ypsilanti teens which will promote positive outcomes in all areas of life. We are committed to increasing the number of Ypsilanti students who receive a diploma, and for each graduate to have a post-high school plan, one student at a time.

Educate Youth; an investment into today’s youth

Educate Youth supports students as whole people, regardless of the cards they’ve been dealt.  They receive academic support, SAT preparation and teen-led activity planning.  Students are supported with consistent, positive mental health interactions and role models.
Education gives a new hope for teens. Earning a high school diploma not only impacts the student, but it role models to younger siblings and other youth in the community that it is important to succeed academically.

The video on our history page was made by teens for teens. The teens who made the video attend Skyline High School in Communication, Media & Public Policy Magnet.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi

Educate Youth is excited to share we will be hosting the second School Board Panel discussion. 
The goal of the evening is for the community to meet and to learn about the people running for Ypsilanti Community School Board.


Videos of the school board discussion are here and here.
