All of Us & You Youth Center (A.O.U.N.U) will provide programs and activities that recognize the developmental, educational and social needs of youth who need guidance, tutoring and mentoring. We will offer a structured developmental, educational and social program for youth 12–18 years of age.
When we developed our program we kept two things in mind. 1) To design a less stressful environment that is fun, challenging and loosely structured, yet filled with both imagination and information. 2) Offer more advanced programs for older youth. All youth can be involved with projects that test their creativity, problem-solving, social and decision-making skills. A.O.U.N.U will provide a quiet and comfortable atmosphere that is conducive for learning, study and activities. Educational professionals will be staffed to teach Math, Reading and English. Tutors will also be available to assist youth with homework in problematic areas.
We are here to open the doors to self-awareness, give youth the capacity to stand apart from themselves and examine their thinking, motives, actions, habits, tendencies and become aware of their personal concerns from a social aspect. A.O.U.N.U wants to reduce crime and help bring positive change to today’s youth. It is our belief that our whole person theory will create empowerment and empowerment creates change. This will motivate youth to collaborate on ideas that will shape their future. A.O.U.N.U Center offers positive extracurricular education in a welcoming and safe environment.
