Although From Me 2 U Inc was formally incorporated by the State of Ohio on September 29, 2014, it is a successor organization. The programs and services currently offered by From Me 2 U, Inc. were formerly provided by V.O.I.C.E. Consulting, a social enterprise for-profit business. From Me 2 U, Inc is now a 501(c)(3) IRS tax-exempt nonprofit organization.
From Me 2 U, Inc focuses on positive youth development. Youth are encouraged and challenged to explore and identify their talents and personal challenges that may prevent them from excelling. Youth have an opportunity to enroll in several programs, each designed to support and build self-awareness, leadership, and stewardship.
We also believe that to provide adequate support to our youth, we must also support youth development professionals and families. Therefore we have carefully designed our internship program so that college students have the opportunity to develop and grow their skills and take an active role in program development.
Additionally, From Me 2 U, Inc. believes in social entrepreneurship and offers facilitator contracts to entrepreneurs that want to engage and mentor youth to become social entrepreneurs
