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

Revolution Youth was founded in 2017, by Chilly Chilton and Clint West. From the beginning, our goal has always been to show youth that they are loved - unconditionally - and that they belong and have an extraordinary potential and purpose.

We believe it's our mission to offer each young person the support they need to thrive in today's society. And while youth substance abuse, bullying, suicide rate, high school pregnancy and school dropouts are at all time highs; we’re optimistic. We make progress each day, thanks to the help of our team, partners, volunteers and generous supporters. We believe there's hope for every young person to have their needs met, to feel fully alive, healthy, and be equipped to fulfill their greatest potential.

In this for youth. The best is yet to come.
