Who We Serve
Youth Opportunities Unlimited (Y.O.U.) serves children ages 9 -16 in the Greater New Bedford area. Our mission is to create opportunities for exploration, discovery, and adventure that our participants wouldn’t otherwise have. Whether children are cooking meals using ingredients completely new to them, gaining hands-on instruction in bike maintenance, or exploring local neighborhoods that they have never visited, we offer a safe and supportive environment that encourages all of our students to open their minds, follow their natural curiosity, and realize their full potential!
Our participants are primarily local elementary and middle school students. Grant funding and donor generosity allow many students to attend who would not otherwise have the means. We value inclusivity and welcome students from all socio-economic backgrounds. Our team is dedicated to the belief that all children, whatever their background, can benefit from a supportive and stimulating learning environment. Y.O.U. continues to prove that the diversity of cultures and perspectives adds meaning and impact to every experience. We want you and your child to join the adventure!
