Mission Statement

The mission of Youth-on-the-Move, Inc. is to help youth of all ages, races and backgrounds, succeed in life with the help of positive community role models (our International Educators' Hall of Fame Inductees, business and community leaders and parents) who act as mentors, coaches, trainers and teachers, imparting their experience, wisdom and "life skills", enabling our future generation of leaders to be prepared to face all the challenges of life with confidence and positive expectations.

Background Statement

Youth-on-the-Move, Inc. was first conceived as "The Young Brothers' Association in 1986 in Sacramento, California.  The purpose was to provide summer activities for young men ages 5-18 during their summer break and while their parents were working.  The program secured community role models of all professions, cultures and talents to mentor the young men and to interact with them -- at at the business of the role model or at other locations.  at the end of summer (1986) parents and the community asked if we could continue as an after school program-- and to include girls.  The BOD agreed and the name was changed from "Young Brothers' Association" to "Youth-on-the-Move."  Since then we have positively impacted thousands of young lives throughout California and even throughout the country and overseas.  Military personnel, law schools, and many others adopted our program and began to give in many ways.  Today, we are in Orange County California continuing to make a difference and to impact lives -- especially concerning inter-generational relationships and activities. Because of a societal need to honor effective educators -- especially retired educators; we have created a program to honor retired humanitarian educators:  the International Educators' Hall of Fame.  The purpose is to honor, uplift and have both groups of people (retired educators and youth interact and help one another -- wisdom, patience and gentleness with energy, curiosity and enthusiasm. The seniors act as one group of "positive" community role models, coaches, etc.

Impact Statement


Our accomplishments in the past year included:

1) Planning and implementing an International Educators' Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies in 2018 in both Anaheim and Davis, CA.  A team of over 200 multi-aged volunteers donated over 2,000 hours for 3 months-- all working together from a variety of cultures for the success of the events.  Both Youth and teachers danced, and performed at the events. Please visit our website:


2) Youth-on-the-Move, Inc. tutored about 25 youth on weekends and afterschool.

3)Conducted an essay contest for 60 youths. Gave $100.00 first prize; $50.00 2nd prize and 2 $25.00 prizes for 3rd prize.

4. Received $1500.00 in scholarship funds from Santa Ana Kiwanis Club. 

 for being an outstanding community servant.


Top 4 goals for 2018:

1) Develop program for the Educators' Hall of Fame Museum, Archives and Learning/Training Center in Orange County.

2) Have the 5th Hall of Fame event in Orange County.

3) Have the Hall of Fame event as a major fundraising event to net at least $20,000 or more. This event will feature seniors as positive role models and youths interacting and bonding with these seniors.

4) To build a strong, dedicated board that is passionate about youth success and seniors bonding and bridging the generation gap.


Needs Statement

Top 5 most pressing needs are to:
1) Help youth develop their talents, skills, self-confidence, and knowledge about self.
2) Have youth and seniors form stronger bonds and relationships (mentor/mentees, trainers/trainees) both learning from the other
3) Increase our finances to render adequate services to truly serve the youths -- and their families.
4) A largest enough space for a museum and learning center (a building with many rooms of various sizes).
5) Good youth advocates-- dedicated adults and seniors to coach, mentor and train youths.

CEO Statement

Youth-on-the-Move is unique because we focus on youths (ages 5-30) to help them succeed in life.  We involve the family and the communities where they live (we believe in the concept: "It takes a village to raise a child." Our mission "to help youth succeed in life," allows the organization to be flexible in identifying what will help each child -- in a personal way.  We then find role models, coaches, tutors teachers that help encourage to child/youth to be all they can be -with the help of many.  For example,  if a child is failing or weak in school, needs clothes, likes drawing, we will seek a tutor to help with improving the grades in school.  We will also help find suitable clothes, shoes, etc.  for the child to be comfortable and presentable and next we would contact a musician or music teacher to give lessons or tutor.  We engage the parent(s) or guardian(s) of what is happening and encourage them to get involved and to know what we plan.

Next, we keep track of the progress of the child/the family and those involved in helping the child.  At Christmas and other holidays, we celebrate with the children and families in a local church, school, community center, etc. We get donated food, awards, recognition items for all involved.

So our program focuses on:
1. Need of the child, parent, etc
2. Plans to reduce/ solve the need.
3. Implementation of the plan
4. On-going evaluations of the progress and results of our efforts
5. Modification if needs
6. Celebrations
One of the greatest characteristics of our program is that it is multi-generation, multi-cultural and diverse in every sense of the word.  We are proud of our results and interaction with all stake holders.  My passion is the gift I have received -- the love of children (and families) to help them succeed.  And we seek others with similar passion.  At one point, I opened and operated my own school -- my son, born overseas was being influenced in ways that were not positive.  I needed to make a change and opened my own school -- those young people today (including my son) are role models for others and creating and giving back to other youths. We have news articles and letters of thanks from the youth and their families.

Reflections written by Dr. Pat Adelekan, CEO/Founder

In 2018, Youth-on-the-Move, Inc. (YOMI) is 33 years old.  As I look back over the years and review all that we have planned and accomplished since then, I am astonished, pleased, and awed.  We have positively impacted the lives of over 10,000 families and 100, 000 youths (ages 5-24). We have become a strong intergenerational organization -- where youth and senior interact positively in many areas (the arts, storytelling, singing, reading, performing, computer assistance and learning and teaching together.  Tech Tools is the name of one of our intergenerational programs.

How did we do it?  Our activities and philosophy embrace myriad cultures, ethnicities, language skills, abilities, talents, age groups, and careers –   and we see miracles.

We believe that youths have potential that span a range of gifts and talents, and that our purpose is  to help youth discover their talents in order to develop self-knowledge and self-confidence which often lead to  success.  – Aim to  encourage, praise, and reward youth. 

We sponsored Youth Talk, a live radio program, produced and operated by YOMI youth on KJAY Radio; (2) The International Educators’ Hall of Fame (inducting over 600 retired humanitarian educators – who serve as positive role model.

Aur volunteers include doctors, educators, lawyers, engineers, the military, business, parents, churches, the newspapers, chambers of commerce, other role model youths, managers, athletes, etc. 

Some of our partners are/have been Los Amigos of OC.  The Santa Ana and Anaheim Chambers of Commerce, Georgia’s restaurant, Fullerton College, Chapman University, The Orangewood Foundation, Valley High School, No Fear CO and the Kansthul Instrumental Com., La Habra High School Choral, etc.

CEO Comments

 Because of the compassion of Dr. Patricia Adelekan, the founder and CEO of YOMI,  she creates many activities and opportunities for youth and seniors collaborating together.  She has been able to direct the organization and influence hundreds of volunteers to keep the organization serving and making a difference.  We are now beginning to reorganize and rejuvenate our involvement in the community.  We realize we need paid administrative staff and an operating budget that will help us better serve our target audience -- youths in need of mentors and caring positive adults and others to help them reach their fullest potential and goals/dreams -- giving retired educators a chance to still give back and to make a difference.  We are optimistic and feel that we have the best volunteers in the world.  They believe in the mission and vision of the organization and are enthusiastic in their efforts to motivate and inspire youth.  Our volunteers are givers and compassionate about what we do for youths and their families.
