Support through connection

Youth-Centered. Impactful. Inclusive.

Wyman partners with young people by providing experiences, opportunities, and resources to support and challenge them as they grow and learn. Our programs offer opportunities including community service; social, emotional, academic, and leadership skill building; postsecondary access and support; and teambuilding and outdoor camp experiences.
As our young people continue to face challenges and social inequities, Wyman staff are listening and providing our teens with support and space for connection and empowerment. At the heart of all of our programs is helping our young people develop the skills that are critical to ensuring they learn to overcome challenges, feel connected to and build relationships with others and their community, and do well in school.

Our Programs

Wyman blends a youth-centered approach with evidence-based practices to create and deliver programs that help each teen define and achieve personal success.
