We Are Coming


For Our Youth (FOY), a non-profit 501c3 organization that supports at risk youth in the Chicagoland area. FOY strives to mold the minds of tomorrow for life, by facilitating several programs including the Most Valuable Potential, Situational Speaker Series, and volunteerism. We strive to ensure our youth after the completion of our program have the skills to thrive, reach their goals (personal and professional) and give back to their community.

Through your generous and necessary donation, we can provide our youth a brighter future through structed guidance with compassion. This fiscal year, we are branching out into a new location, to provide a safe nurturing space for youth to grow. We look forward to your donation towards our annual goal of $50,000.

Who We Are

Our Mission

To educate youth in Financial Empowerment, Technology and Violence Prevention one community at a time.

Our Vision

Throughout the world our youth are growing up without a clear understanding of their responsibility to their communities. Our vision is to change the communities by educating youth and renewing their minds so that they can live a positive life style one community at a time.


After witnessing the negative behavior of the students in the school system, Gayle Newcomb founder of For Our Youth felt compelled to develop an organization that would work throughout the nations to enhance the education system by helping our youth excel to their highest potential.

For Our Youth stands on four pillars, Motivate, Achieve, Pursue, Success (M.A.P.S) The organization was initiated in April of 2007 to offer incentives for youth to complete their education. For Our Youth also provides avenues for a positive outlook for their lives.

Gayle Newcomb is an ex-Peace Corp Volunteer, who worked with At-Risk Youth on the island of Jamaica, she is now a Business Owner and Missionary.
