Revolution Youth is a non-profit organization building programs and partnerships that meet young people's needs.

Together, we can give the next generation what they need to thrive in the modern world.

Since Revolution Youth was founded in 2017, we’ve been chasing one ambitious goal: sharing unconditional love to each and every young person. We believe it's our mission to offer the support they need to thrive in today's society. And while youth substance abuse, suicide rate, high school pregnancy and school dropouts are at all time highs, we’re optimistic. We know how to solve the problem, and we make progress every day thanks to the help of local partners and generous supporters. If we work together, we believe there's hope for every young person to have their needs met and be equipped to fulfill their potential.
