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”

“Before you came, I didn’t know what I wanted to be or what I wanted to do in five years but now I know whether I get out of jail or not I want to get my GED and a job before I’m 18 years old.”
Anonymous Youth
“I feel more positive, because if I feel down about a situation, all I have to do is ask them and they’ll help me in anyway they can.”
Darian
“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.”
