Thanks for taking an interest in getting to know us.  We think you’re pretty interesting too. In fact, it’s people just like you who fuel our mission by supporting a community that values youth.

Who We Are.

The Milton Community Youth Coalition (MCYC) is a group of people, organizations and businesses who care about young people in Milton.  We are parents, teachers, students, neighbors, legislators, business owners and organization leaders working together to engage youth in making positive, healthy and substance free choices through education, programs and community events.

What We Believe.

We believe a community that stands up for young people is a better place in which to live, work and play.  We fully support the notion that it takes a village to raise a child.  We believe that the most effective way to encourage healthy choices is through a holistic approach, bringing the community together to help our young people feel empowered, supported, cared for and allowing them to take healthy risks (think ropes course) that don’t involve the pressure to use alcohol, tobacco or other drugs.  We believe that our future relies on our youth.

Why You Should Care.

Sure, there are lots of great nonprofits out there. But what makes Milton Community Youth Coalition stand out?  Well, for one thing we are small and we are local.  We ARE the community in which we also serve.  How many of these important causes can say that your time, money and energy made a difference right in your own back yard?  Made a kid smile? Made a young person feel special, recognized and appreciated?  Remember, two things : (1) these young people are your future employees, neighbors and leaders and (2) Benjamin Franklin had it right when he said “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”  So go ahead, explore our site and tell us what you think.
