Youth Services

The Epicenter


The Epicenter exists to empower at risk and system involved youth ages 16-24 to flourish by connecting them to community resources that provide opportunities for equity and hope in order to improve youth outcomes in Monterey County. The Epicenter is a replication of the VOICES centers in Napa and Sonoma Counties. We are a youth led and youth-run organization that works towards empowering at risk youth by providing them with a one-stop resource center.
