The Launch Pad is an all-inclusive, youth driven and focused space, providing programming that is culturally relevant to teens in Yavapai County. We incite teen confidence and empowerment through innovative community education and engagement.
The vision of The Launch Pad and all it offers is a community vision inspired by long meetings, surveys, and interviews with parents, teens, and community members.The Launch Pad started as an idea that developed as a response to a series of community meetings regarding the needs of teens in the Quad City Area. With youth participation, representatives from youth organizations, and local schools, a strategic planning team was formed.
The Launch Pad is an all-inclusive space and does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, sexuality, class, religion, or ability. The Launch Pad is a youth driven and focused space, providing programming that is culturally relevant to teens in Yavapai County. We believe that youth are powerful agents for change in their own lives and in the lives of others, we believe they are the experts of their own lived experiences, and that the best way to serve youth is through love, compassion, and stability, with a deep respect and belief in their capacity to be powerful members of our community.
