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.”

“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”
