Community Impact

Loudoun Youth, Inc. was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in April 2005.

We believe there is no investment more critical to our future than our investment in our youth. – Carol Kost, Founder

The mission of our organization is to provide diverse programs to empower all youth in Loudoun County.

We support and develop programs that provide Loudoun teens positive out-of-school activities in safe environments helping teens become confident and contributing members of the community.

We accomplish this through community partnerships with organizations and agencies including Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS), the Loudoun Youth Advisory Council (YAC),  and the Advisory Commission on Youth.
