Wyman is often known for our historic roots and referred to as “Camp Wyman” for the camp experiences we began offering to youth in St. Louis in 1898. Since that time, Wyman has served and supported the youth in our community – always believing in and celebrating their leadership, energy, and determination.
Wyman—a nonprofit organization with over 120 years of experience working with teens—is committed to innovation, strengths-based positive youth development, and evidence-based best practices.
At Wyman, we believe that EVERY YOUNG PERSON:
- Has the potential to succeed and lead, regardless of life circumstances.
- Deserves to have connections with caring adults who empower them to share their voice and engage within their communities.
- Deserves equitable access to quality education, work and life experiences.
But equitable opportunities are not a reality for all young people. At Wyman, we believe there’s a better way. Together with our partners, we help teens build brighter futures and become tomorrow’s leaders.
Wyman is recognized by some of the nation’s leading youth development organizations and ranked among the best places to work in St. Louis. To support the next generation of leaders, we encourage you to apply.
