Meet the WYO Team

Our vision is to make all teens feel welcome and accepted for who they are, and feel free to pursue what they are interested in and embrace their talents—in hopes that they lead lives of integrity and service. As a team-oriented organization we are transforming into something that modern-day teens both need and want to be a part of.
