Foundation Focus: Children and Young Adults

Children and Young Adults represent the future of our community. By providing the support and opportunities to enable our youngest citizens to thrive we will create a more vibrant community for all of our residents.

What we envision:

  • Children in Williamsburg will enter school ready to learn.
  • Educational enrichment opportunities will be available and affordable for local children.
  • Young adults will have opportunities for volunteering and employment in our community.

What we support:

  • Early childhood development.
  • Positive youth development through after school and summer enrichment programs.
  • Educational and therapeutic programs to enrich the quality of life for children and young adults with special needs.
  • Protecting children from abuse and neglect.

What we measure:

  • Number of children and young adults served compared to number of residents in that age group.
  • Types of opportunities offered.
