Mission Statement

At YouthLink, our mission is to support and empower young people on their journey to self-reliance. Our vision is a community in which all youth, without regard to their living situation, have an equal opportunity to pursue their goals and dreams, and an equal likelihood of achieving them.


At YouthLink, we have over 40 years of experience connecting young people with a community of resources and support. Whether it’s basic needs, like a hot shower or a warm meal, assistance with employment or educational goals, accessing mental and physical health resources, or finding supportive housing, we can help young people at all stages of their journey.

YouthLink is also the host site for the Youth Opportunity Center (YOC). The YOC is a unique collaborative model, bringing together a variety of organizations and agencies that provide resources young people experiencing homelessness may need - all in one location. Our one-stop-shop model helps deliver life-changing resources more effectively for the young people we work with.

On any given night in Minnesota, 4,000 young people will experience homelessness. But homelessness is not their final destination. Thanks to YouthLink, and supporters like you, we can open new pathways for young people facing barriers, and help them build more stable futures.


We'll work with your schedule.
