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.

“HE PULLED OUT A .357 MAGNUM AND SHOT ME”

“Having a mentor means a lot to me because they sit down and talk to me like no one else does. They make sure I’m safe. They make sure I’m comfortable. That I have everything I need”

“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.”
Marlene Gray
“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.”
