In December 2011, Youth Matter Incorporated obtained a new partnership with Portsmouth Public Schools. Portsmouth Public Schools, is located in the heart of the beautiful Hampton Roads region of Virginia, and has an enrollment of about 15,000 students. The division includes three high schools, three middle schools, 13 elementary schools, four Pre-K Centers, an alternative school, an adult learning center, and a Career and Technical Education Office at the Portsmouth Campus of TCC. Some of Youth Matter Inc.’s after-school programs will be conducted at several schools in Portsmouth, along with our TROOPS TO YOUTH Lunch Buddies Program. In 1999, Youth Matter Inc. was founded in Portsmouth, and the organization has blossomed so much that it can now share its inspiring message with students in schools throughout Portsmouth.
