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”

“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.”

“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”

“I have been exposed to a lot of things – meeting lawyers, doctors, people who have their own businesses, going to college tours that I didn’t know existed – a lot of things that I never thought I would have a chance to be a part of.”
