Youth in Motion is a nonprofit organization which secures tickets to sporting events, concerts, performing arts,
and educational activities across the St. Louis Metropolitan area. The foundation aims to instill the value of fun
while engaging youth in the local community through leisure activities. Our goal is to impact children who live in
underserved communities in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area so they may have convenient access to quality
events that support their overall physical and mental development. Youth In Motion’s purpose is to get
children/families disconnected from social media, video games, etc. and enjoy worthwhile activities in their
community. Our mission is to: build family unity by sharing in leisure activities together, build self-esteem,
reduce stress by having fun, promote cultural diversity, eliminate boredom, meet new friends, and create
lifelong memories. Youth In Motion was born out of a vision to bring the local community together and provide
opportunities for growth to disadvantaged children.
Those who qualify must have state health insurances such as United Healthcare Community Plan, Missouri
Care, Medicaid, or Home State Health. Youth In Motion is a 100% public charity and is independently audited.
