Independent Youth Services Foundation, Inc. relies on the support of individuals, private foundations and corporations to carry out its mission. Your contribution will make a difference in helping IYSF empower young males and build stronger communities.


A generous friend of our ministry is so committed to seeing lives transformed that they’ve offered a dollar for dollar match. It will DOUBLE any gift you give!

Please help us reach a $20,000 matching grant.


We welcome your help! We have several different areas that committed, passionate volunteers can assist in helping us better prepare these young men to be inspired and thrive.

Currently, we are looking for mentors, tutors, and youth sports coaches. Please contact us to sign up as a volunteer!
