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.

Meet Ken

“I needed so much. I was just a kid. YouthLink helped me finish high school. They gave me food, clothes, bus fare. I had no idea how to live on my own, or how to live safely, and YouthLink helped me find safe places to stay while I figured it out.”
