K.N.E.W (Knowledge Necessary to Empower Well-rounded) Youth is a newly formed 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that began with the simple premise that every child has what it takes to reach their full potential with the proper tools. 

Our Mission is to provide youth with inspiration, education, and guidance to excel on their journey while creating a network of champions.  We focus on at-risk youth between the ages of 8-18 in underserved communities in the Greater Cincinnati area.  Research demonstrates that caring adults can play a critically important role in helping to heal youth that have been exposed to violence and trauma in their neighborhoods, schools, communities and sometimes their own homes.

Our staff has 14 years of experience working with individuals with developmental disabilities and at-risk youth with measurable success!  We work closely with family members and other organizations for added support.  We are committed to uplifting and empowering youth to look beyond their challenging situations; and treat everyone’s journey as a unique experience.
