The industry includes various organizations, from sports clubs and academic enrichment programs to leadership initiatives and arts organizations.

Industry Size and Growth

As of 2023, the non-profit sector in the United States is massive, consisting of more than 1.5 million registered organizations. The youth development segment is a significant portion of this, given the large number of youth in the U.S. and the widespread recognition of the importance of youth development. The industry has been experiencing steady growth, driven by increasing societal recognition of the importance of youth development, government support, and generous philanthropic contributions.
