vy9jagketxlkwiwabo2kMr. Roger Doyne is the current director and founder of Youth Institute.  He  has  lived in the College Station community for most of his life and has always desired to be apart of making his community better.  College Station was ravaged by an F4 tornado on March 1, 1997, since that time major rebuilding efforts have gone into the community.  The community has received new houses, businesses, streets, parks, community centers and even a medical clinic.  All of these much needed improvements are well received by the residents and the community is much better in light of them.  However Mr. Doyne noticed that in the midst of all the infrastructure investments there was still something missing.

The missing component was the investment into the lives of the youth in our community.  There has been little movement toward providing after-school and out-of-school programming for the children and youth.  This is the problem that Youth Institute hopes to solve.

Youth Institute is interested in creating an environment for youth to not only grow, but also an environment for youth to develop those critical life skills and a Christ-centered worldview that will serve as an anchor as they navigate through life.
With limited resources but a desire to make a difference, Mr. Doyne decided he could not stand by another summer and do nothing for the youth of this community. With one gift of $500 from a local businessman a building was secured.  Since that initial investment, others have donated their time, talents and resources to provide a very beneficial opportunity for the children and youth of College Station.

Unfortunately the statistics tell us that 67% of the African American homes are without fathers.  With this being the case, mothers are not only having to be the loving nurturer in the home but also the main breadwinner.  At the end of the day, there is only so much time and strength to invest in their beloved children.  Youth Institute hopes to serve as an extension of the home and provide these parents with the support they need to raise up well-balance youth.  With your participation, prayers, volunteerism and financial support we can create an organization that will make a huge difference in the lives of our children and youth in this community.


To equip a generation of youth , physically, mentally, academically, socially and spiritually through intentional training and  development.


Our mission is to provide guidance, training, and mentoring during the developmental stage of a youth’s life. Our goal is to equip them with the necessary tools needed to navigate through life successfully. Character development and life-skills training will serve as a foundation for life. Youth Institute is a faith-based organization and all of its programming stems out of a Christ-centered worldview.


Through the use of strategic programming and mentorship we hope to create an environment of exchange whereby we will be able to transfer a wealth of knowledge and experience into the lives of the next generation. As we  identify the God-given gifting and talents of each individual youth,  we hope to support that with an array of strategic programming and mentorship which will serve to guide the youth toward a more rewarding experience.

Summer 2015

Summer program started June 15 thru July 31st. The program focused on providing two meals a day, breakfast and lunch, five days a week. We were able to provide over 2000 meals to the youth of College Station during the summer months. We had over 70 youth come through our doors to take advantage of what Youth Institute had to offer. Programming included morning devotions, games, sports, gardening, music lessons, healthy meal preparation instructions, guest speakers and presenters, and fieldtrips. On August 15th we had our End of Summer/Back to School Celebration. At this event we presented all the youth certificates for completing the summer program, as well each youth was given a free back pack filled with school supplies. Many thanks to all our supporters and volunteers.
