Youth Development

PELICAN STATE YOUTH MOVEMENT

aka PSYM

Bastrop, LA

Mission

Our mission is: To better prepare our youth for the many challenges they will face in their everyday lives, while also enhancing the overall development of our communities as a whole. PSYM is dedicated to providing our youth the critical foresight needed to heighten their awareness, stimulate their motivation, and focus their attention towards obtaining total preparedness. Our youth must realize the vital importance of "preparedness" in order to overcome the sometimes devastating factors of life, that prevent many from reaching their fullest potential. Our goal is to help our youth to become successful and contributing members of our society. Most importantly, become "positive" role models for other aspiring youth today.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
