Sequor Foundation’s Youth Development Initiative
Established in 1988, the Sequor Foundation has provided significant funding for programs serving youth in Texas and Louisiana. Major projects that it has funded are the Bradberry Chair at Texas A&M University in addition to the Sequor Youth Development Initiative. Through these projects, the organization has significantly influenced helping youth develop positively.
Sequor Youth Development Initiative (YDI)
The Sequor Youth Development Initiative (YDI) resulted from funding provided by Texas A&M University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in the Spring of 2009. Since that time, Sequor YDI has positioned itself as a widely recognized center for youth development resource development and delivery. An additional generous contribution from the Sequor Foundation in 2010 has further enhanced YDI’s ability to accomplish its mission.
