BUILDING HOPE. SAVING LIVES.
Every child, teen, and young adult deserves equitable access to housing, healthcare, support, and opportunities that keep them healthy, engaged, and actively pursuing a future of unlimited possibility. At MYC, we prioritize mental well-being while fostering connection and a sense of belonging, to ensure every youth knows and feels that they matter.
Our Compass Program provides equitable “out-of-school” learning experiences to local middle & high schoolers, ensuring each student feels significant and finds success.
Life can be tough at times. Come talk with us about what's on your mind: coping with the loss of a loved one, navigating stress at school, or scary stuff in the news. Let's develop new coping strategies and find hope, together.
