Our Promise to Youth


The Center for Youth is the best organization to turn to for young people seeking to deal with, explore, or understand issues of importance to them - from their perspective, and on their terms. Started by kids, for kids, all Center services - from counseling, to shelter, to education, to referrals - are rooted in, and delivered with the knowledge that youth want to, and can, take responsibility for their life choices.

The Center for Youth is associated with SafePlace and SafetyNet for Youth.
