Once again this year, YouthQuest Foundation is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving on November 28 that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity. #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
For this year’s #GivingTuesday, we are highlighting three ways you can help us expand our signature STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) project, the 3D ThinkLink Initiative.
Sponsor a Youth Mentor by purchasing a $750 Tech Pack, which includes a 3D printer, design software, laptop computer and training for our most motivated and deserving 3D ThinkLink graduates. As Youth Mentors, they will share what they’ve learned with their family, friends and neighbors, helping to drive positive change in their communities.

Make a cash contribution in any amount for general support of this ever-growing project, which has introduced hundreds of kids to 3D design and printing since 2013. Besides gaining valuable job skills, students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, creativity and confidence. Most important, at-risk youth discover that their failures are not final.
