About Us


The Center for Youth provides comprehensive programs and services from prevention education to counseling to emergency shelter to youth development opportunities with respect for and full participation of youth. We deliver these services with the deep belief that young people, given information and support, want to and can make their own positive life choices.


The Center for Youth will be a model for best practices in partnering with youth so all youth meet their potential.

Promise to Our 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 are rooted in and delivered with the knowledge that youth want to, and can, take responsibility for their life choices.


The Center for Youth was founded by youth for youth and has been incorporated since 1971.
