History: Youth 4 Change (Y4C) Inc., was established in 1994 as a grassroots organization, a one man team, that had a desire to assist youth who were at-risk. After many passionate years of providing assistance to children, Y4C Inc. became a Tax-Exempt Organization under section 501(c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Service and a recognized domestic non-profit organization under the State of Georgia in 2014. Vision: The vision of Y4C is to foster CHANGE in at-risk youth that society wants to see by providing mentoring services, early intervention and pre-trial diversion programs to children ages 8 to 18. Y4C’s vision will be progressive: local, state wide, nationally, and then globally. Mission Statement: Our mission is to provide safe housing to youth in lieu of incarceration, strengthen broken families, and empower youth to make a positive CHANGE.
