Grow Your World



Grow Your World "GYW" is youth-centered community building organization. We believe that equity and access benefit everyone and create win-win dynamics for individuals and the community at large.


Theory of Change

If we pair 4-12th graders with college students and young adults for tutoring and enrichment opportunities...

and foster developmental relationships that recognize strengths, encourage growth, and build confidence in identity and capacity...

then we practice brain development skills, emotional management tools, and growth mindset skills with youth and college students...

and encourage each person's personal and academic growth through access to resources, opportunities, and mentors in their fields of interest...

Then youth increase confidence who they are, learn to build and maintain relationships with people of all ages and backgrounds, and practice the perseverance necessary to overcome the inevitable challenges that arise as they go after their goals.

And college students develop sense of belonging and responsibility in their local communities, build intergenerational relationship skills, and impact young people through mentorship opportunities.

Lastly, adult community members increase meaningful ways to share their skills and networks, and increase their connectedness to younger people in sustainable ways that increase their energy, connection, and purpose.
