Our mission is to mentor children and young adults by developing them to be strong individuals. We aim to provide the youth opportunities to express themselves through dance and various workshops. Supporting the development of mind, body, and soul, New Wave Dance Youth and Community Development, Inc. provides as many individuals as possible with a thorough foundation for future success.

Our goal is to secure a space for underprivileged youth to express themselves through the arts. We want the opportunity to develop the leaders of tomorrow by providing them with the tools needed to be successful. Having an available space dedicated to these youth will allow them to be creative and become advocates for their communities. We will help low-income individual’s secure gainful employment through resume assistance and interview practice. We strive to equip youth with the confidence, skills, and tools to succeed in all aspects of life. We also want to encourage the youth to maintain healthy exercise and hygiene. According to the CDC, Nearly half of American youths aged 12-21 years are not vigorously active on a regular basis. About 14 percent of young people report no recent physical activity. Inactivity is more common among females (14%) than males (7%) and among black females (21%) than white females (12%). As a community organization we can help increase their level of activity by creating opportunities for physical activities that are enjoyable, that promote adolescents' and young adults' confidence in their ability to be physically active, and that involve friends, peers, and parents.
