Building a New Generation of Leaders

President’s Welcome
On behalf of everyone at the Young Center and the dynamic youth we serve, I'd like to welcome you to our website.  Here you will find valuable information about our organization’s mission, programs, achievements, and how you too can get involved and support our efforts.  At the Young Center, we are committed to providing our youth with the critical tools, guidance and support they will need to succeed in college, business and life.  We cannot do this alone.  We value your input and support of our efforts and we look forward to hopefully working in partnership with you in the near future for the benefit of our diverse youth population.  Please feel free to contact our organization at any time should you have any questions or concerns.  Once again, welcome to our website.  Enjoy!

                                    William A. Young
