OUR YOUTH MATTER, INC.(OYM) "Changing How to Reach Today’s Teens"
OYM is a non-profit designed to equip youth leaders with the tools they need to produce vibrant and youth relevant programs, provide youth with leadership skills and educate all OUR YOUTH MATTER!
Our Youth Matter (OYM) was established in 2008, to demonstrate love to our youth and equip youth leaders with the tools they need to produce vibrant and youth relevant programs.
Due to the growing issue of violence, low self-esteem and poor academics among our youth, OYM took on the role as youth advocates because we believe our youth’s voice should be heard and research indicates that time with parents and other forms of parents' involvement in a child's life is crucial to positive development for children and adolescence.
OYM wants to challenge the church to rethink how they do youth ministry in order to reach the youth spiritually, emotionally, socially and academically.
We believe you can not reach the youth with the same old tactics. New and out of the box approaches has to be made in order to encourage, empower and save our youth to produce Leaders of Today!
