YouthNet helps the students of South Orange and Maplewood grow and prosper by identifying their needs and developing and incubating programming that engages them creatively, intellectually and socially, after school. In addition, we obtain and distribute funds to local youth organizations, and facilitate training for service providers, fostering more efficient shared practices and resource allocation. By encouraging this kind of multi-leveled communication, participation and collaboration, YouthNet provides the kind of support students need to become strong citizens and makes our community stronger in return.
