What We Do

Using the Youth Activity & Resource Directory

Our mission is to ensure every young person in Central Indiana has opportunities to thrive, learn, engage and contribute. We are an intermediary; our work adds value by keeping the focus on developing supports and opportunities needed for positive youth development.

The driving force of our work is the pursuit of three hopes for local young people:

  • Economic self-sufficiency
  • Healthy family and social relationships
  • Contributing membership in the larger community

MCCOY orchestrates community-wide efforts to build a better community for youth, providing support services to direct-service organizations and acting as an advocate for nonprofit fields and organizations.
