Our mission


The goal of Youth Exploration Services is to assist youth in their academic growth...making sure that they understand the basic concepts as a foundation for learning in the classroom and to provide environments for exploring other opportunities including the arts for growth beyond the classroom.

All of the programs are open to the general public on a first come, first served basis.

Some programs are available at no cost and others are offered at rates that are priced well-below the Raleigh market prices to make sure all youth have access to the various opportunities.

Now we focus on acquiring funds to assist families with the fees. This is how you can assist us... If you are blessed to work for a company that supports youth or youth programs, please let us know. As was mentioned on Sunday we are searching for funds to support students with arts lessons and tutoring fees. A lot of time has been spent searching and vetting various companies. It would be helpful to know if you work for a company with a promising policy concerning assistance for youth programs; we will do the work once the company has been identified. Our rates are some of the best in the Raleigh area but they are still out of reach for some parents; especially single parents, desiring music lessons and tutoring for their children. Also, if you or anyone you know who may be interested in sponsoring a youth the following will apply: Tutoring: $25.00 per hour session Arts Lessons: $60.00 per month - 4 weekly 30 minute lessons Thank you in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide...
