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 Shannon Acuna, Integrated Services Supervisor, at 612-252-1242 or sacuna@youthlinkmn.org.

“I joined because at one point in my life, I was the youth in need. With the right support, I was able to find God and find a way out of my situation. My goal is to share my testimony and help youth see that there hope for them too.”
