Our Programs

Multicultural Youth Program

The Multicultural Youth Program works with teenagers and young adults from diverse backgrounds, with a focus on working with youth and their families who may self-identify as multicultural or from an immigrant family.

Our goal is to help them connect to resources, services, and programs in the community, develop leadership and peer mentoring skills, and gain the knowledge, life skills, and encouragement to success on their particular paths of education and growth.

Want to get involved? Join the Spectrum Multicultural Youth Program on Facebook.
