Founded in 2003 as a community drop-in center and redeveloped in 2008, Street Smart Youth Project is a community-based 501(c)(3) offering a wide range of programming including young adult education, mentoring, community outreach and evidenced-based prevention curricula for youth and young adults ages 10- 24.
Our mission is to actively engage minority youth and young adults in structured, community-based programs in order to involve, prepare and empower them for growth and healthy living as adults. We emphasize prevention regarding delinquency, substance abuse and HIV. Street Smart Youth Project serves targeted communities where youth are underserved and have too few resources. Programming is designed to help youth transition to healthy adulthood through exposure to alternatives to at-risk behaviors.

This year, our goal is quite hefty. Our greatly valued van has run its course but not without a great deal of use. In the last three years since it was donated, the van has been our trusted youth development vehicle that has taken our youth to various cultural and recreational activities all over the Southeast, and has served as a practice vehicle for youth to attain their drivers’ licenses! Additionally, our van is most often used as an outreach vehicle that has distributed thousands of condoms and hygiene items to community members. Sadly, after our last college tour, our van is now out of commission. We ask for your help to continue our efforts to enrich the lives of under-resourced youth and communities.
