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.

“It’s a valuable tool to the community because the children they’re trying to reach need to have the role models and the things that Higher M-Pact provides.”
Sherri Oaks
“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
“Get involved with Higher M-Pact because it’ll change your heart, it’ll change your outlook, it’ll change the way that you view life and it will open your eyes to problems that exist in our own backyards.”
