We believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to develop into a positive and productive human being and to potentially become a community mentor for those who follow. By building confidence and instilling self-awareness, the youth in our programs develop the tools to transform their lives, which may have been unhealthy and self-destructive.
Morpheus Youth Project builds healthy communities for young people thru arts and culturally responsive activities.
In an effort to create positive change with under-served youth, we focus on three strategic areas:
- Marginalized communities such as outer East Portland and Gresham.
- Entry level (county) juvenile justice facilities such as Multnomah and Marion County Juvenile Detention Centers.
- Long term (state) facilities such as MacLaren Youth Corrections.
