WELCOME “The desire to share your heart is the result of your heart acting in love.” - Isabel - All of us at Victory for Youth would like to welcome you to SHARE YOUR HEART. It is our hope that you will join us in helping the children and their families in our communities. We believe the desire to share your heart is the result of your heart acting in love. We believe that when we all unite for a purpose, the impact we make is far greater than we could imagine. The current times we face are difficult, and the challenges that families are facing are greater than in years past. Furthermore, the ones that are mostly affected are our children. We are committed to helping these families and their children facing these challenges find solutions for a better future. These families are seeking the help of the Department of Children and Families (DCF), so we have partnered up, adopted three service hubs, and we are committed to helping all children and families in need. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about this initiative. Please review this presentation to see how you can help join us in this amazing effort, SHARE YOUR HEART.

Victory for Youth Corp is a non-profit 501c 3 organization established in 1998 to provide teens and young adults and their families regardless of race, color or religion, with the knowledge of the programs, services and opportunities available to them. Since 1998, Victory for Youth has done this by reaching out to those who are facing problems with substance abuse, teen pregnancy, physical abuse, gang issues, by bringing resources together such as healthcare organizations, state and county agencies, youth groups, faith-based organizations, and by providing career opportunities through work placement and job training. Victory For Youth has done several projects since 1998 such as “Victory Day” A fun day set aside for our youth, with a meaningful purpose; job training for seniors in collaboration with the AARP program; Counseling Programs; the 4 Real Violence Prevention Program in the schools and job placement for the disadvantaged and special need population. Some of our collaborating partners are the Department of Juvenile Justice, the Department of Children’s and families, the Florida Department of Health, Miami- Dade County Public Schools, and the Florida Department of Education to mention a few.
