Truly Valued Inc

A nonprofit organization

Truly Valued, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.  Our mission is to promote positive self-esteem, education, confidence and character among youth and families.

Truly Valued serves families in Manatee and Sarasota Counties, FL, with programs that build character and confidence, promote education and community service, and educate them on avoiding crime, drugs, teen pregnancy, human trafficking, and other negative outcomes. 

Our focus has been teen girls, but recently boys and younger children have joined. We incorporate full families into our program to strengthen our impact.

Our impact to increase the quality of family life and decrease negative outcomes among participants, is measured by surveys and reports from families.

I Am Academy

I Am Academy will include weekly character and confidence building programs for youth in elementary,  middle and high school, a summer program, and community engagement for families. All programs use the evidence- based curricula of The Nurturing Parenting program  

E3 (Educate, Enlighten and Empower) - formerly Tea Party 4 Girls

This event allows participants to meet and talk with successful professionals from the community who share their own backgrounds and information about their careers. This program is offered to a wider range of youth throughout the year, allowing us to expand our service as well as to identify new youth to enroll in our weekly program.

Nurturing Families

The Nurturing Families Program®  is a family-centered program designed for the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect. Both parents with children birth to 18 years participate group-based. Lessons are competency-based ensuring parental learning and mastery of skills.
