MyCom Approach

MyCom prepares Greater Cleveland’s young people to enter early adulthood with the ability to foster healthy relationships throughout their lives and the skills to compete in a global economy.

We believe that youth development is community development and by building a network of support and growth opportunities for our youth we are strengthening our broader community.
MyCom’s work is neighborhood based; focused around our youth, building partnerships, bringing in new and leveraged resources to create opportunity and meet neighborhood identified strategies and needs.

Additionally MyCom takes a systems based approach as we engage large community wide systems; education, law enforcement, libraries, Metroparks, as well as others to work towards a future where youth are successful, productive community members.
