About

Face2Face Youth Group Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public benefit corporation (Tax ID 82-5337893). We are not affiliated with any church or religious organization.

Our mission is to improve the social and emotional well-being of youth. To do this we encourage youth to spend less time on electronic devices, like smartphones, and more time at “offline” activities and events.

For the first time in generations, our kids aren’t learning how to socialize in person. These days, too many young people are staring at a screen on their smartphone, tablet computer or another electronic device. As a result, rates of depression and self-harm among teens are surging upward (30% between 2010 and 2015 alone).

Background

Face2Face Youth Group was founded by parents and guardians of pre-teens, who witnessed first-hand the skyrocketing use of smartphones among teens and pre-teens and the accompanying issues they faced. After taking a Youth Mental Health First Aid course, these parents recognized the need for more widespread support for youth, including more “offline” activities.

We’re working with the local teen center to offer an after-school program that provides options for preteens and teens beyond the typical. This is an exciting time and we can’t wait to meet you and your youth.

Our Vision

Over the next decade, Face2Face Youth Group Inc.’s primary focus will be on youth living in Northern California. Face2Face Youth Group Inc.’s objective will be to equip the greatest possible number of children in our service area to cope effectively with life, create satisfying relationships, and develop a sense of connection, belonging, and a well-developed support system.
