About Us

Welcome to Partners for Youth where we work to empower the community to support at-risk, under-served youth in Lexington.  Our mission is “to promote positive youth development and to prevent juvenile delinquency through collaboration and capacity building.” We live out this mission in a variety of ways.

Whether it’s providing grant support through our Grassroots Allocation Program, distributing educational scholarships and empowerment through our Toyota Scholarship and Neighborhood Youth Council Programs, or building community collaborations that bring together community partners to support youth in meaningful ways, we are dedicated to improving the lives of our young people.  It’s through these efforts and more that we build relationships and make a difference.
