Impact Of U, Inc is a 501c3 non-profit organization located in Jacksonville, Florida. We are focused on helping school-aged children ages 5-18. Our goal is to make a positive impact on the lives of the youth of Jacksonville, FL by providing spiritual, mental, emotional and physical support through services and donations from the community. We also encourage adults to get more involved in the development of our youth to help them prepare to lead productive and successful lives. Our core principles center around helping individuals build a positive mindset, discover their purpose and make a positive impact on their community.
In order to prepare these young adults to significantly contribute to their community, we must first address their basic needs. A student who comes to school without worry of where their school supplies, toiletries, or clothing will come from, is better prepared to learn. Next, we will pair students with a mentor with similar interests to provide consistent guidance throughout the year. This support also includes available resources so mentees can make informed decisions when preparing for their future. While these two components will be our main focus, we also plan on assisting mentees with other important facets of their lives (ie. homecoming/prom, starting a fitness and nutrition program, apparel or equipment for athletics, and potentially awarding a scholarship to deserving, graduating student-athlete). In closing, we have a very ambitious drive to positively impact the lives of youth in any way possible. Thus, our motto is “Showing the love of God by meeting the child at their need.”
We will provide food, clothing, toiletries, and school supplies for children in need. In the future, we also want to provide tutoring, mentoring, bible study, job training, college assistance, scholarships, and sports clinics. All of this will be provided from donations from the community, both public and private. Monetary donations will be accepted via PayPal.
