About Today’s Youth Matter

Sending Kids to Camp Today’s Youth Matter is a non-profit organization that affects young people at their most vulnerable time. With an emphasis on character-building, the organization provides a unique summer camp experience for high-risk, battered, and abused children and teens.

Since June 1990, TYM has met the needs of over 3,600 youth who have been subjected to physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. Over 80 percent of TYM children are in foster care or living in group care facilities.

Sending Kids to Camp The aim of TYM is to transform low self-image youth that lack discipline into young adults that possess effective behavioral skills. By empowering youth towards personal achievement through one-on-one mentoring, wilderness adventure, tutoring, and year round follow up, TYM helps them develop the interpersonal skills they need to perform well at school, at work, and to become productive members in the community.
