Vision - YoungAndWiser, Inc. envisions a world in which empowered young adults and adolescents are able to make positive and healthy lifestyle choices with increased awareness and understanding of the developmental challenges they face physically, socially, and emotionally.
Mission - We provide developmental education programs and services and collaborate with educational and other institutions serving adolescents and young adults.
Some developmental theorists have claimed that young people achieve a coherent identity and later they master intimacy. In reality, college students are pushed to do those tasks simultaneously.
With an uncertain identity, social and sexual behavior is unsteady and de-personalized. Students need to understand the developmental pressures they are experiencing to minimize the effects of auto-piloting their way into trouble. Our developmental model gives them these needed tools to understand what's happening to them and enables them to develop a safe flight plan. Please help in this effort

Meet Ivorie Frazier

When students see her they come running. Her ability to achieve instant rapport is noteworthy. She seems to enjoy clients as much as they enjoy her. Some people pick the right major. Ivorie is definitely one of them.
