“We are powerful beyond measure”

“Our worst fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? … As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Marianne Williamson

The success of our youth creates successful communities

The world is changing and so should the way we approach youth development and leadership. YOCO believes that by focusing on what youth can do as opposed to the barriers they face, we can tap into their boundless potential.
