Our Mission

Help youth make a difference in themselves and their community through meaningful service opportunities and educational experiences.

Triple impact: Youth, Environment, Community.

who
we are.

At MHYC, we believe supporting the development of youth ages 17-24 has long-term impacts on individuals, communities, and the environment. For 28 years, we have combined meaningful paid service opportunities in career pathways with education and personal exploration to help young adults discover their strengths and learn to lead. MHYC offers career pathways in land, energy & water conservation, construction, and health & wellness. When youth know themselves, feel supported, and can serve others, they will change the world!
