Mission: Empowering youth to find and build their communities.
Vision: All youth participate in shaping a vibrant community.
Youth Central empowers youth, ages 12-18, through group-based volunteer and leadership experiences. These experiences range from committee work, event planning, short-term projects, and community volunteering. We provide a welcoming and safe environment that is driven by youth. We value meaningful and equal engagement between youth and staff, where individual strengths, ideas, and opinions are respected and encouraged. We believe youth should volunteer and be involved in social change efforts at all levels of the community.
