Wyman’s 125th Anniversary

For over 125 years, Wyman has believed in the power of teens.


Wyman was founded in 1898 to provide St. Louis youth with the opportunity for outdoor and character-building experiences. Since then, our work has continually evolved as the world and needs of young people have changed. But one thing has remained the same: our commitment to teens. 

Now, Wyman is part of the lives of more than 3,000 St. Louis area youth and nearly 30,000 nationally every year. By partnering with youth, our community, and youth-centered organizations across the country, Wyman empowers teens, equips adults, and strengthens systems to create more equitable opportunities for all young people; helping them prepare for the future they want. 

In 2023 we celebrated this historic milestone – honoring our roots that allowed us to grow and develop into a youth-centered, impactful local organization.
