Our Unique ‘SPECS’ For

Raising Young People

A faith-based youth-focused nonprofit organization promoting children and youth development

THE GAP

Across the world, young people attempt to meet their needs and build competencies as they grow from childhood to adulthood: the needs for safety & structure, belonging & relationships, self-worth, independence, competence, and self-awareness.  The challenges of meeting these enormous needs holistically have resulted in a widening life skills gap in the developmental process of young people. 

OUR RESPONSE

Since 2013, Young Breeds has been providing value-based education, support and opportunities to bridge the life skills gap among young people as they grow unto adulthood so they can find identity, become productive and purposeful and as a result, make informed decisions in various areas of life.
