Make a cash contribution via PayPal or Contact Us to give a different way. As the saying goes, any amount will help to support Educate Youth. You can designate how you want the funds to be used, or you may make a no-strings-attached donation. The no-strings-attached option will allow the executive director to spend the money in the best interest of the organization.
Create a fundraiser in our behalf, like a silent auction, food tasting, dinner, or concert; a community-based activity would be great for raising funds and good times.
Fifteen new cases, all new team members, two new captains what more is required for a comeback to the Ethics Bowl. We are delighted to share that after a year long break Educate Youth will have a team, Ypsilanti Youth, participating at the Ethics Bowl 2020. Over the past six years we have observed the positive impact of learning about Philosophy and Ethics. The participating students improve in their reading, vocabulary skills, critical thinking, the ability to look at important decisions from a number of perspectives, and decision making process. The Ethics Bowl is one more way Educate Youth supports youth in developing positive attitudes towards learning.
Educate Youth is excited to announce its partnership with The Ride, through the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority. The Ride is dedicated to ensuring safe and efficient transportation for the youth in our programs, through the donation of 200 bus tokens.

Prevent & Prevail is a program created by youth between the ages of 13 and 16 after learning that the HIV infection rate is highest in the 13-23 age group. The goal of Prevent & Prevail is to have open discussions in a safe, confidential, fun, and all inclusive environment. Teen facilitators receive over 20 hours of training before leading a series of information sessions and discussions for their peers.
On August 5th, 2017, we participated in OutFest 2017! Folks who came by the table learned about Prevent and Prevail, our comprehensive sex ed program, and bought jewelry that benefits our teen programs.
