The mission of GROWTH Foundation is to help youth and adults reach their academic and occupational goals, and achieve self sufficiency and overall well-being. A guiding principle of the organization is that belief in oneself becomes possible when one is believed in.
GROWTH Foundation, Inc. formed in January 2006 as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit California Corporation to provide supportive services to at-risk youth and their families, including an award winning after school program, academic scholarships, employment preparation, referrals and advocacy. GROWTH has since shifted its focus to assisting underserved youth with education costs via the GROWTH Foundation Scholarship, and individualized support services to former after school participants who continue to work towards their academic and occupational goals.
Additionally, GROWTH has partnered with drug treatment professionals to develop PEN TO PAPER: Journaling to Heal, a workshop designed for parents (and future parents) of at-risk youth to help break the cycle of abuse and addiction. To learn more, please visit our PEN TO PAPER page.
