The MCYC began as a small community based organization in 1997, as part of the Milton Family Community Center. With initial funding from the Vermont Department of Health through the original New Directions program (created by then Governor Howard Dean), a group of concerned citizens came together to support a teen-based program that provided alternative activities and supported substance free choices. The Milton Community Youth Coalition went through a number of transitions over the next 8 years and then in 2008 the MCYC became its own formal, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
