Our Impact

Leading Behavioral Change One Life at a Time

The Village Network realizes that change is made one life at a time, one decision at a time, one moment at a time. Quantifying the impact of The Village Network is only possible by seeing and hearing the positive testimonies from leaders, volunteers, parents, staff, and of course, the very youth we seek to help. Here are a few examples of the impact you are telling us that The Village Network has on the communities it serves.
