WHAT WE DO:

The UCMIT Foundation builds relationships with communities and youth by adopting the five areas of development: Working, Learning, Thriving, Connecting, and Leading.  UCMIT Foundation's youth development and youth leadership programs focuses on building on each youth’s capabilities and strengths and addressing a full range of developmental needs. UCMIT Foundation's youth leadership program places an additional emphasis on specific components central to leadership development.  At the UCMIT Foundation, we believe that the key components of youth development and leadership programs are vital when preparing youth to meet the challenges of adolescence and adulthood.  Thus, we encourage each participant in our program to embody our core values of Unity, Character, Motivation, Integrity, and Trust in their daily lives.  The practices and characteristics of the UCMIT Foundation program helps to equip the youth and the emerging workforce of today, to become the leaders of tomorrow.
