J.U.N.T.O.S: Together, Inc. is committed to developing and cultivating socioeconomically disadvantaged youth and their families to realize their full potential by becoming agents of change within their communities. We will accomplish this through direct and indirect services such as offering after school programs, and grassroots advocacy workshops that are designed to empower participants. We believe that youth and their families must assume and embrace a pivotal role in the societal decision making process, and with guidance, they will possess the power to influence social change in their communities.
Joining United Neighborhoods to Teach, Organize and Sustain
We believe the youth are instrumental in society’s progression because they have the power to change political systems that marginalize youth. With their sense of social awareness and commitment to social action, which reconnects to community values, will create civic-minded leaders that will model and lead the next generation to proactively and passionately serve their communities. This empowerment will bring forth leadership from the grassroots perspective using a “bottom-up" approach, thereby establishing and supporting better communities, good citizenship, and ultimately positive global responsibility.
