PERSPECTIVE. EXPERIENCE. RESULTS.

At Start With Me, we understand there are multiple ways in which organizations choose to engage our youth.  We also understand that there is no "one size fits all" approach to youth engagement: what’s important is to find an approach that works best for the individual. We work to support young people in a variety of ways and measures success by the effectiveness of our efforts and the positive change it creates.

MISSION

To provide meaningful opportunities that educate, inspire, and prepare youth and young adults for positive youth development and lifelong learning.

VISION

All youth have access to necessary resources and supports that help to create the foundation for future success.
