Our Vision

At Imani Youth Foundation, our vision is to encourage youth to look beyond their boundaries, discovering who they desire to be and believing it’s possible.

Our Mission

Our mission is to build community where youth have aspirations and believe that through faith, commitment and hard work those aspirations can become reality. To bring this to fruition we reach into various communities throughout Memphis and Atlanta and work with and for youth to help them learn to build a sturdy foundation that leads to a strong future. To accomplish this in the short term we create and implement programs to meet the needs of the youth we serve. To effect long term youth development, we work to increase awareness of the issues facing youth and solicit, engage and mobilize the support of the community to expand the boundaries of the youth we serve.

In developing the Youth Advisory Council The mission was “equip young people to empower the world”. We do this by training youth leaders to become the foremost providers of youth leadership development by partnering with communities and creating more caring, responsible and productive citizens.
