To provide the youth of Greater Cleveland the opportunity to explore and discover their highest potential through education, recreation and community outreach.
The Vision of Angels Youth Foundation is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that was established in 2009 by a gentleman named Sears Mitchell, a completely blind individual who had a vision of change for the city of Cleveland. He started the organization with a group of friends which blossomed into the productive and sustainable organization it is today. The mission of the organization is to provide the youth of Greater Cleveland the opportunity to explore and discover their highest potential through education, recreation and community outreach. Over the past five years the Vision Of Angels Youth Foundation has been able to accommodate and support over 200 children from and around the Cleveland area. We have a dedicated team and the necessary experience to make a difference in the community.
Compared to youth across the nation and throughout the state of Ohio, the children living in or around the Cleveland area, on average are amongst the poorest outcome in school achievement and graduation rates, highest risk of pregnancy, highest unemployment rate, and highest rate of youth committed crimes. The primary goal of the Vision of Angels Youth Foundation is to make a significant impact in Greater Cleveland in these respective areas. Over the past five years the children that have been involved in our programs have shown significant strides of improvement in each of these statistical categories. This was achieved through offering arts and cultural, recreational and community outreach programs which were designed to improve their physical, social and artistic development.

This program is consisted of Praise, Hip-Hop and Modern Dance. The goal of this program is to improve each child’s physical, social and artistic development. The Dance Team performs throughout the state of Ohio at various venues, which helps in providing each child a unique and educational experience.
This program was created to improve the children's education and development in five general areas: physical development (kinesthetic skills), artistic development (drama and theater skills), mental development (thinking skills), personal development (intra-personal skills), and social development (interpersonal skills).
This program was designed to assist in molding young boys and girls into successful young men and women of the future through recreational and educational activities. The goal is to expose the children to things they wouldn’t normally be exposed to, which would improve their social, personal and educational development.
This program was designed to show the youth a variety of different ways to express their ideas and work as a team to produce written art work that they can share with others. The students will be exposed to poetry, comic strips and short stories. The group's writings will focus on topics that help teach life skills and core values.
Weekly programs are located at the Downtown YMCA from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm every Saturday. For additional info call (216) 543-5330.
