Who We Are

Innovation in Mentoring
Youth Guidance Mentoring and Activities program is the longest operating mentoring program in Indian River County. Youth guidance has been serving at risk youth from low income, single parent families since 1973. As a pioneer in the mentoring movement in Indian River County, Youth Guidance exemplifies a grass roots, community supported solution to the problem of children growing up without sufficient positive adult role models in their lives.
Our Mission
Youth Guidance is dedicated to enriching the lives of Indian River County youth through mentoring relationships that inspire trust, self-esteem and positive futures.

Thank you for the Support from Our Generous Community Partners



Grants Update

In the fall of 2017 all local nonprofits were invited to participate in the IMPACT 100 grant process. IMPACT 100 will award four $100,000 grants at their voting meeting on April 18th. The large grants are intended to allow the recipient to make substantive and transformative changes in their services. This year's Grant Finalists were recently announced at a "Meet the Finalists Reception" at the Vero Beach Country Club. Youth Guidance is seeking to develop a STEAM Magnet Program for its Mentoring Academy. Find out more about Impact 100 by visiting www.impact100ir.com
