About I Got Heart

Mission

Help young people reach their potential and make a positive impact in their communities.
We do this by:

  • Providing financial grants to youth to fund community projects
  • Sharing stories of positive youth impact to promote an accurate and balanced image of today’s youth
  • Provide workshops on life skills to youth in the DC area

Vision

We envision a world in which:

  • Young people have the resources and opportunities to reach their goals and engage in their communities
  • Adults see youth as partners in the community and value and understand their passions, ambitions, and strengths
  • All people consider how tapping into our Heart can enable us to reach our individual and collective goals

Values

Service

Putting the needs of others before our own to help people move closer to their goals and help the community advance.

Inclusion

The first step in building a better future is to include others – we can do more with the diverse experiences, view points, and skills of others than we ever can alone or with only our own perspective.  We will not turn away any individuals with a positive frame of mind.

Respect

Every individual’s ideas and experiences are valuable.  We strive to respect the viewpoints of others, even if they differ from ours.

Innovation

To achieve new results, we explore new approaches.   I Got Heart seeks to help youth bring new ideas for progress to the community.

Resourcefulness

We believe in abundance of resources to achieve our goals as an organization, and work with people to harness the resources in their hearts and communities to achieve change.

Empowerment

Providing others the room, opportunity, and support to actualize their potential.

I Got Heart is managed by a team of all volunteers and is a 501c3 organization.
