Higher M-Pact's Story

The term "at-risk youth" describes adolescents living in urban areas at risk of becoming something antisocial, criminal or violent.


Higher M-Pact doesn’t focus on those youth. We seek out the high-risk youth already engaged in such behavior, delinquent activities or the Juvenile Justice System.

“A lot of those kids do not expect to live past 21 years old, and Higher M-Pact puts hope inside of those children.”
Larry Ryan
“They’re doing a wonderful job dealing with the kids, showing them there’s more than just street life and turning them into brilliant young adults. I feel like they’re friends instead of just a program. I love them.”
Antoinette McCoy
“The best thing about Higher M-Pact is the exposure to careers that are out there. The trust factor between HMP and the youth is great—I feel doors are opening because of this group.”
