About Youth of North Carolina
What We Do:
Youth of North Carolina (YONC) is North Carolina’s only grassroots organization dedicated to building resilient youth by bridging networks and collaborating with youth-serving organizations.
This is accomplished through:
Community advocacy on minimizing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)
Youth Resilience Summit program – conference for adults that work, volunteer, or care about children
Youth Quake – Program designed for middle and high school youth helping to develop resiliency (the ability to draw upon inner strength, heal from traumas, manage stress, etc.)
Our collaborative model that connects the best resources from different nonprofits across the state
The mission of Youth of North Carolina, a 501(c)(3), is to provide the best-in-class supplemental training and support services through our collaborative model that helps to minimize Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) throughout North Carolina. We work collaboratively with all youth-serving organizations to educate, advocate, listen to community needs, and lead in making lasting changes to better the lives of our local youth.
We envision a day when all youth in North Carolina will grow up safe, independent, and well-adjusted, giving them a competitive advantage as resilient adults.
