Youth Infusion is a 501c3 Non-profit Organization dedicated to engaging young people of Northeast, Pennsylvania in the process of improving communities by providing them the skills, knowledge, resources and opportunities that will foster youth voice and action and empower them to improve their lives and the lives of others. Youth Infusion facilitates collaboration with community partners, including educational institutions, businesses, government agencies, and other non-profit organizations to ensure that youth participation and action are valued.
The heart of our organization focuses on diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. Youth Infusion draws in students who struggle for various reasons. We welcome all! LGBTQ+ students have found comfort in our programs. Students who suffer from mental illness, anxiety, depression, self-harm, bullying, school violence and difficult home situations are all finding a place of belonging through our programs. Young people need a place to express themselves, feel comfortable in their own skin, and ultimately know that they are not alone. Youth Infusion provides that very place through our service-learning and peer-to-peer approach.
We are focusing on creating, building and growing programs that work for young people. We are doing this through peer-to-peer connection and connecting youth to their communities. The launch of our Youth Leadershp Advisory Board Program and F.A.C.E.S. - Focused Action and Change through Education and Service Curriculum are crucial to creating environments where young people feel safe, valued, supported and where their voices are heard.
