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
“At the core level, the kids and the adolescents that are served though Higher M-Pact become aware of a new type of hope and a shift in paradigm relative to where they are and where they can be.”
Drew Hiss
“It’s really neat to see it one on one and see it first hand how these kids have developed and been turned into leaders of the community that then can be role models for these other children growing up in this program.”
