Giving and Receiving for Connected Community.

Our Mission

YTB supports youth by providing training and resources for youth-led community projects. YTB develops strengths and social connections for people of all ages.

Our Vision

Youth are engaged with community and their needs are addressed. YTB is youth-adult partnership. Youth develop strengths, increase social capital,
co-develop/co-deliver projects and serve as cross-age YTB coaches.

1. Assets

Each youth is an asset

2. Redefining Work

Youth contributions help our community

3. Reciprocity

Reciprocity creates community connections and interdependence

4. Social Networks

Social networks are building blocks and safety nets for youth

5. Respect

Respecting youth brings out their best

Our Core Values

If Youth ARE, a youth-adult partnership...

provides service opportunities where people earn time credits for their contributions

Then more people will...

have experiences with service to others, gain a sense of competence and develop strengths and make connections

So that more people become community partners who...

co-produce sustainable, positive changes in themselves and their communities and experience peer-to-peer, cross-age, youth-adult, and intergenerational solidarity.

Youth ARE's Theory of Change

Our team is a diverse group of individuals  led by Jerome Scriptunas, CEO and Founder of Youth TimeBanking.

Our Team

Inspired by the teachings  and philosphy of the trailblazing Edgar S. Cahn and an unforgettable meeting, Jerome answered the call to action when the meeting ended in Dr. Cahn’s challenge 
“Do Something.”

Our Story

Youth TimeBanking values all skills regardless of qualification and education.
