YTB works for all youth and we want to be able to make it available more broadly. There are thousands of youth in New Jersey who are disconnected from their community and uncomfortable with venturing beyond their doorstep (if they have one) to discover what is out there and how they can contribute. Like everyone, these youth need a sense of belonging and opportunities to practice building skills and gaining confidence in their capabilities. The same can be said for other places. The thing that is different about YTB is that it is not a service that is given to youth or done to youth. YTBNJ.org is an endeavor to connect youth with appropriately matched opportunities to make meaningful contributions where they live and, in their neighborhoods, and communities. These helping, giving, sharing-the-work experiences bring out the best in youth and help them make safe choices as they move along their transition to adulthood. YTBNJ.org does a little bit of good, and with your help will do more. Thank you.
