Donating to St. Paul Youth Services is a great way to amplify youth voice and improve outcomes for youth -- everywhere they are: at home, at school, with the law, and throughout the community.
Our work spans from 24/7 crisis response to behavior intervention all the way upstream to improving public policy and creating the conditions for youth to thrive!
Here are 10 great reasons to donate. We...
- ensure all youth have safety nets and second chances

See How We Impacted City Policy!
At our recent Youth Forum, young people courageously shared their serious concerns about changes City Councilmember Rebecca Noecker was proposing to Saint Paul's curfew law. As a result of their feedback, she withdrew her proposal.
It demonstrates the importance and power of youth voice in policy and of St. Paul Youth Services' leadership in connecting policymakers with young people to create a community that wraps its arms around our youth. Read CM Noecker's statement.
Thank you for responding to youth concerns, CM Noecker!
