Youth Education & Outreach

 IMG 1935

Youth in Moab need positive cultural role models and families need a caring support system to improve the safety and wellness of youth and children. Families want their children to have positive cultural experiences that teach them how to embrace their own culture(s), build multicultural friendships, as well as learn about and respect people who may look, speak, or act differently than themselves, MVMC invests in the general health of the community by having advocates available to assist with educational, health, legal and wellness needs of children. 

The MVMC provides multicultural education and advocacy from prenatal to 18 years old in Moab and surrounding rural areas. MVMC frequently partners with healthcare providers educators, and other you-focused organizations. 

We offer free or very low-cost youth programming and support all year round. Youth services focus on multicultural learning, wellbeing, and community connection. Our partnerships are crucial to the success of our youth services.

Be a mentor or mentee! Each week we pair older youth with a younger friend for supervised reading, dinner, and fun activities.
