New Options, More Opportunities
NOMO (New Options More Opportunities) Foundation's mission is to provide a safe space for youth and young adults to develop positive life skills and nurture their potential to break the cycle of poverty.
Instead of getting stuck on problems and problem prevention, we move to nurturing positive outcomes; we focus on what young people need to thrive. From reacting to problems and needs, we become pro-active. We move from targeting young people either high risk or gifted to planning and creating opportunities for all young people. Instead of looking at young people as recipient of services and programs, we look at young people as resources, as partners who can make valuable contributions in planning and implementing activities. This also means we are moving from programs to a more community wide network of learning opportunities, interactions and activities.
