Youth Unlimited is a global organization that has had a presence in our community for two decades. As their vision indicates, they see the hope and potential in every young person. Through many programs and events, Youth Unlimited pairs adults with young people who need to see their own potential and who are then provided with avenues and encouragement to live this potential out. Youth Unlimted offers a program for pregnant and parenting teens that provides tangible items like diapers, also teaches them skills like meal planning, preparation and how to manage their money.
