As an advocate for healthy youth development in Indiana, the Indiana Youth Institute provides capacity-building programs and resources for the state’s youth workers and nonprofit, youth-serving organizations.
Our mission is to promote the healthy development of Indiana children and youth by serving the people, institutions and communities that impact their well-being.
Our vision is that all Indiana children and youth will attain five critical elements of healthy youth development: physical health and safety, emotional fulfillment, academic achievement, civic engagement and economic self-sufficiency.
