About Us

What We Believe

Our Mission, Vision, and Guiding Principles are important to us. They are critical in aligning our team members, parents, students, and other stakeholders towards the lasting impact we will make in this world.

Our Mission

Movement of Youth prepares diverse youth to lead and succeed in the 21st Century through mentoring and targeted enrichment activities led by college students.

Our Vision

We aspire to become the nation's leading movement for young people to disrupt the status quo and build a safer, smarter, and more socially-conscious world.

Our Guiding Principles

Our Guiding Principles happen to be our tagline -  Engage. Enrich. Empower.

  1. Engage: Everyone is valuable. How we engage, collaborate, and build relationships fosters growth. We are committed to taking an active role in contributing to the success of our youth so they in turn become influential leaders.
  2. Enrich: We will always strive for excellence and encourage others to reach their fullest potential. There is always more we can do to enrich ourselves and the lives of others.
  3. Empower: We believe that everyone is born with what it takes to make a difference in this world. To that end, we work to empower youth to discover their unique gifts, helping them achieve and advance towards a successful life.

As we continue to grow as an organization, it has become more and more important to explicitly define how we develop our culture, our brand, and our strategies. We strive to embody our Mission, Vision, and Guiding Principles in all that we do.
