Youth Village


Youth Village, Inc is a 501c3 non-profit organization located in Fort Walton Beach for children in Kindergarten to 8th grade. It was formed in 1999 to create a safe place to provide various educational and recreational services to children in our community. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing environment with supportive mentors, teachers and other caring adults to help our children acquire a love of learning and create a desire to achieve.

Capital Campaign

Youth Village has outgrown our little building on Pelham and we are ready to grow! We will either build or purchase a new building. Youth Village needs your support in helping us grow and reach even more children in our community. We have touched so many lives these past 15 years and we look forward to help even more. It is important to us to provide a safe place for children and this new place will help us do that. We plan on having better security, add more programs and activities for both children and their parents, and of course a place where children can meet others and have fun. Would you help us?
