YouthWorx on Main :: Carrboro, NC

Our Vision

The vision of YouthWorx is to harness best practices, build capacity, and improve collaboration within an affordable shared space. The goal: To more efficiently and profoundly impact the lives of our community’s youth.

By bringing youth-focused nonprofits together — not just sharing a physical space, but more importantly in a shared spirit – we will more effectively impact the lives of our community’s youth. Together, we can do more. Much more. But we can’t do it alone.

Harnessing the Power of the Collective Good • When like-minded people commit to a common cause, great things are possible. Individually, we have strengths. Collectively, we have strength. At YouthWorx, we will share. We will confer. We will flourish as a collaborative. And our youth will prosper.

How YouthWorx, works:
• Coming together
• Joining forces
• Collaborating
• Sharing best practices
