It is easier to build strong children than repair broken men
~ Frederick Douglass
We envision a world in which all youth are successful in life regardless of their background, demographics or experiences.
Our mission is to ENCOURAGE, EDUCATE, and EMPOWER
youth to pursue their dreams.
Our core values are based on our definition of Self-Respect:
1. Encourage youth to trust caring adults 2. Educate youth to learn individual assets
3. Empower youth to use resiliency skills
Inspiring and guiding our youth to rise up as the next generation of leaders in their communities requires a multi-facted evidence based strategy to meet the unique social, cultural and emotional needs of our youth. Impact Delaware uses life skills development as the core component of our mentoring programs to:
EDUCATE | career workshops, college campus field trips, educational workshops
ENCOURAGE | social skills groups, leadership seminars, guest speakers
EMPOWER | civic engagement projects, community service events
