Welcome to the "Chief David Thompson Youth Initiative!"
"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men."
- Frederick Douglas
The "Chief David Thompson Youth Initiative" is a non-profit organization for at-risk youth in Robertson County. The goal of the organization is to provide a safe place, as well as complimentary tutoring, arts, sports, a daily meal, and overall enrichment in the lives of local 6th - 12th grade children. This organization was established in 2017, by Whitney Lee Thompson Forrester and is named after her father, not only to pay homage to his previous 5 youth centers that he has started and successfully run all over the country, but also to remind our at-risk youth the positive impact that law enforcement has on the community. The organization is already providing these services to several local youth and is currently providing a summer camp as well!
