Youth Education & Outreach

Youth in Moab need positive cultural role models and families need a caring support system. 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.

The Moab Valley Multicultural Center provides multicultural youth education and outreach experiences for children ages 3-18 in Moab and the surrounding rural areas. We offer free or very low-cost youth programming all year round. MVMC also provides education spaces including our Multicultural Mural. Youth programs focus on interactive learning, positive self-esteem, volunteerism, and the celebration of cultural diversity.

We love to partner with other organizations to provide fun and exciting hands-on learning experiences, and these partnerships are crucial to the success of our youth programming.

By providing multicultural education and outreach for youth in Moab, we hope to facilitate cross-cultural friendships and foster greater curiosity and understanding of diverse cultures. We also aim to promote better health and literacy for youth in Moab, and demonstrate the importance that all children should feel loved and supported by their community to ensure future success and achievement.
