At Firm Foundations Youth & Family Outreach, advocating for and empowering teens to know that they are a vital part of our communities is what we’re working together towards. Our programs and activities are designed to be a catalyst that helps youth in middle and high school reach their goals and fulfill their potential. We invite you to learn more about the positive impact we have made, and to join us as we continue to transform lives.

Who We Are

Firm Foundations Youth & Family Outreach, is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that is driven by our 3 E's IMPACT Formula - EDUCATE + EXPOSE + EMPOWER = IMPACT.
Our implementation process is based on proven strategies and evidenced-based practices. We strive to build productive mentoring relationships with teens and to make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.




Join Us!

Due to COVID-19 and our priority to keep youth, staff and volunteers protected, Firm Foundations is currently offering limited programs. Currently, we are staying connected with our current members through virtual efforts and have reduced our group sizes for our programs. We are also registering new teens to join our programs in both Mecklenburg and Cabarrus County as we anticipate our full re-opening in the fall.

“The question is not whether we can afford to invest in every child; it is whether we can afford not to.”
