Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and fund our mission of empowering youth, strengthening families, and rebuilding our communities.
M.U.S.T. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization focused on supporting teens and parents through the challenges of life. We help to build effective communication skills and relationship techniques between parents and their teens. M.U.S.T. was founded by Vonetta Wade, a single mother who felt like she was failing as a parent due to non-effective communication and constant conflict with her teenage daughter.
Vonetta left home when she was just 14 years old due to "conflict" with her mom, so she never learned what a healthy parent-child relationship should be. The cycle was continuing with her own child, so she founded M.U.S.T. as a means to get and give support to other parents and teens dealing with the same challenges.
This program not only helped Vonetta and her daughter's relationship to grow stronger, but it has helped many other families as well. It has evolved into a platform for helping teens grow into self-aware, confident, and productive adults and helping parents understand some of the issues and negative influences their teens may be facing including, but not limited to, peer pressure. When parents understand, we are better equipped to support and save our youth and teens.
We understand that communication is the key to any lasting and successful relationship. With that in mind, our main goal is to encourage interaction and dialogue between the parent and child. We believe this is the first step in rebuilding the family and thus will eventually lead to the rebuilding of our communities.
Our mission is to provide a safe haven whereby parents and teens are encouraged to share and express their ideas, talents, disappointments, issues, etc., in a supportive, trusting, and caring environment. We support and promote emotional, spiritual, and personal growth.
Encouraging self-esteem, self-love, and self-confidence
Cultivating talents that exists within every child
Enforcing positive expression
Building leadership, and communication, and networking skills
