Who We Are

Our Mission

Get Involved

We are a non-profit agency that has been in operation since 2011 offering cultural, educational and social enrichment programs for youth grades 1-12 and one year post high school graduates.  CTYE provides services to youths from all walks of life and we act as a supplement to the families and schools of our youth.
Our mission is to foster a positive and encouraging environment for future leaders of our community and actively join efforts in the process of developing a diverse cohort of young leaders.  We desire to be caring agents who assist youth in acquiring the abilities, experience, support, consciousness and confidence to purposely and positively direct the course of their own lives and influence productive change in their communities.

Mission Statement: “Building a village to bridge the gap between our youth and their hopes, dreams and community.”
CTYE believes in a four way partnership that consists of the Parent, Child, Teacher, and Liaison/or GAPs staff.  As a CTYE Liaison you can help fill the gap and join our mission.  Our goal is to build a network of partnerships that strengthen and encourage our youth and each other. The “quad-dimensional” relationship is formed to further aid each child in reaching their greatest potential.  CTYE believes that each investment we make into a young person’s life will create a lasting impact and have a tremendous benefit to society.  We inherently subscribe to the African proverb of, “It takes a village to raise a child.”  Committed and caring adults seeking to multiply our efforts can apply here.
