Emerald Youth Foundation is an urban youth ministry with a 22-year history serving Knoxville's inner-city children, teens and young adults. More than 1,350 young people participate yearly in its faith, learning, and sports programs.
Emerald Youth Foundation is starting a new 501(c)(3) organization—Emerald Charter Schools—in order to submit a public charter school application to Knox County Schools.
As a faith-based ministry, Emerald Youth Foundation will continue its Christian mission of helping urban Knoxville youth grow as leaders. However, in its role of launching a public charter school, Emerald Youth Foundation will begin a new, separate, non- sectarian organization to manage the public charter school.
Emerald Youth Foundation has a longstanding track record of partnering with Knox County Schools and will increase its support of traditional public schools in Knoxville's urban neighborhoods.
