Our Vision

Regenerative Design

Five Points Youth Foundation advocates “regenerative” solutions:  processes that restore, renew or revitalize their own sources of energy and materials, creating sustainable systems that integrate the needs of society with the integrity of nature. Whereas the highest aim of sustainable development is to satisfy fundamental human needs today without compromising the possibility of future generations to satisfy theirs, the end-goal of regenerative design is to redevelop systems with absolute effectiveness, that allows for the co-evolution of the human species along with other thriving species.

Adhering to to the theme of Regenerative Economic Theory we are driving our projects and capital campaign through Zero based budgeting (identification of a task or tasks and then funding resources to complete the task independent of current resourcing) within our own network, rather than source and spend thousands of dollars on “anonymous” and “uncertain” crowdsourcing campaigns.

We are committed to making mission investments to further our philanthropic goals. They include any type of investment that is intended and designed to generate both a measurable social or environmental benefit and a financial return

Neighborhood Empowerment and Economic Development

Economic development is also referred to as the quantitative and qualitative changes in the economy. Such actions can involve multiple areas including development of human capital, critical infrastructure, regional competitiveness, environmental sustainability, social inclusion, health, safety, literacy, and other initiatives.

 

STREAAM Education Initiatives

STEM education is an acronym for the fields of study in the categories of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. “R” represents “rivers” and the whole acronym reflects “Water” as the basic necessity for all life on Earth. We consider Art and Architecture to be core components in schooling from kindergarten through college to improve competitiveness in technology development. It has implications for workforce development, national security concerns and immigration policy and our commitment to  “regenerative” development solutions.
