History

After witnessing the negative behavior of the students in the school system, Gayle Newcomb founder of For Our Youth felt compelled to develop an organization that would work throughout the nations to enhance the education system by helping our youth excel to their highest potential.

For Our Youth stands on four pillars, Motivate, Achieve, Pursue, Success (M.A.P.S) The organization was initiated in April of 2007 to offer incentives for youth to complete their education. For Our Youth also provides avenues for a positive outlook for their lives.

Gayle Newcomb is an ex-Peace Corp Volunteer, who worked with At-Risk Youth on the island of Jamaica, she is now a Business Owner and Missionary.
