Youth Education & Outreach

Multicultural youth education and outreach in Moab helps our youth find positive cultural role models and gives support to parents in need a caring support system. Focusing on children ages 4-18 with an emphasis on immigrant, minority, indigenous, and vulnerable youth, the Moab Valley Multicultural Center hosts free or low-cost youth programming year round, including the Multicultural Mural’s outdoor diversity classroom. Youth programs focus on multidimensional learning, positive self-esteem, community service, and the celebration of cultural diversity.

We love to partner with other organizations to provide fun and exciting hands-on learning experiences.
