Our Mission

Our mission is to enrich the lives of Rockingham County’s youth by strategically deploying capital that funds experiences that they would not otherwise have the opportunity to benefit from.

Our Purpose

Rockingham County is filled with limitless, untapped potential. These capabilities are held by its youth. Youth Experience Fund’s goal is for Rockingham County to develop the best scholars, athletes, artists, and community leaders in North Carolina. We plan to do this by strategically funding enrichment experiences that benefit the youth of Rockingham County’s overall development. We at YEF want to ensure that money is never an issue for Rockingham County’s youth, especially when it comes to pursuing their dreams.

Meet Our Team

Coming together from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, our skilled team of professionals is the backbone of Youth Experience Fund. Their ideas help shape the direction and mission of our organization.
