Mission Statement

The Carmel Youth Center is committed to providing a positive and academically friendly environment that is a safe, drug-alcohol-and-tobacco-free space designed for the youth of Carmel and surrounding communities. Our programming will help youth develop strong character, values and citizenship through encouraging volunteerism, peer mentoring, performance and visual arts, athletics and academics.

Description

The Carmel Youth Center was established and incorporated as a California 501(c) (3) non-profit agency in October of 1949. Bing Crosby founded the Center while he was living in Pebble Beach, and eventually helped form over two hundred private, non-profit youth centers. Of those 200 centers, the Carmel Youth Center is the only one remaining.

While Bing Crosby was the guiding force behind the formation of the Center, many community members actively participated in the organization of the Center, and some of those founding members have children who are sitting on the Board today. These founding members participated in the construction of the original building, which is still in use on the southwest corner of 4th and Torres in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
