Youth Opportunity Center - Youthlink

Youth Opportunity Center

YouthLink is the host site for the Youth Opportunity Center – a collaboration of agencies providing services to young people in one location. Having a wide variety of service providers in one location helps break down the barriers young people may face in accessing these services and provides them with a wider range of opportunities and resources.

Below is a listing of our current Youth Opportunity Center partners. If you’re interested in learning more about potential partnership, please contact Marney Thomas, Director of Partnerships and Community Engagement, at 612-252-1226 or thomas@youthlinkmn.org.

“I love to work at YouthLink because we get to connect young people to the resources within themselves and the community that they need to create their own journey. It is an amazing moment when a young person finds their worth.”
