Youth Advancement Program
Our YOUTH ADVANCEMENT PROGRAM has a mission to help local youth girls in 6th - 12th grades, that are facing failures in the classroom, developing destructive habits and/or experiencing social challenges, which all makes it hard for one to see the limitless opportunities that are available to help them reach their full potential. Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be reestablished that will give the young women the chance to commit themselves to follow through on their path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment. To accomplish this goal, young individuals must be in a caring, positive and inclusive learning environment that promotes their best effort and reinforces personal respect.
Recognizing the enormity of the challenges our young women face, IMPERFECT ANGELS' YOUTH ADVANCEMENT PROGRAM focus is slightly different at each level, but the goal remains the same; empower the youth to make positive changes and decisions in their life.
**Community Service is REQUIRED to be a participant of the program

Badge of Honor System
The IAO Angel Badge of Honor System is an organized set of levels that every young woman needs to reach in order to build her self- love, respect, and responsibility so she gains the self-happiness needed to reach her full potential in any area of womanhood. This system does not only provide an enjoyment aspect for the participants but also gives them tools needed to sustain independence and a sense of self-accomplishment as they accomplish each level on their journey.
Annual College Tours
We are planning to begin our Annual College Tours in 2023. This program will provide local youth that are interested in furthering their education beyond high school. As many underprivileged families do not have the resources or availability to provide the children with in-person and virtual visits to college campuses, we would like to bridge that gap. It is important, especially for first generational college students, to have a full understanding of the important sectors in a successful college journey. This will give them a chance to learn about the financial aspects and opportunities, campus living and lifestyles, career/degree choices and processes, and so much more.
