Youth Frontiers

A nonprofit organization

Experiences that inspire character

Our Mission

Provide experiences that inspire character, civility and community.

Our Vision

Our next generation of leaders is grounded in character.

Our Programs

Join Youth Frontiers in our 35th year of inspiring character and community. Since 1987, Youth Frontiers has been inviting young people to make a difference — to treat each other with more kindness and respect, to act with courage, to connect. The need for our mission has only grown. At this pivotal time for our organization and for our community, with more programs for more audiences than ever before, YF is doubling-down on inviting our supporters — inviting you — to make a difference, too. Your gift this Give to the Max Day will help us impact 60,000 people — youth, educators, parents, leaders — with our powerful experiences this year. Together, we can inspire community and create a movement for character.

"I’m an 8th grader who went to the Courage Retreat yesterday, and I didn’t get a chance to tell the instructors thank you. It was such an eye opener. I wanted to tell you that you guys had an impact on me. That was an experience that I will never forget. It made me realize how I can be a better person to others and to myself.”
