We believe all kids are gifted and that those gifts are vital to our community’s health. Matthew 25 empowers youth through positive relationships, hands-on education, and artistic exploration.
There are three core programs for Youth Empowerment. The one on one Book Buddies Program teaches reading skills to 1st graders at neighborhood schools. Our school gardens provide quality experiential learning through a curriculum focused on growing, eating, and preserving food. Groundswell (Matthew 25’s community gathering space and youth arts venue) offers a home for the arts that includes open mic nights, concerts, educational programming, and art shows.
