Emerald Youth Foundation takes the hands of at-risk boys and girls in the heart of Knoxville and walks with them until they are young adults.
Through a comprehensive and Christian ministry of faith, education, and sports programs, conducted in partnership with neighborhood churches, we are helping to create and shape the leaders who will make a positive difference here and in communities around the world.
Our involvement is deep and meaningful, begins at childhood, continues through young adulthood, and every year has a lasting and life-changing impact on more than a thousand young people, their families, their peers, and our city.
