Helping to Build Strong Youth, Families and Communities in the Mid-Mon Valley

The Schooner Youth Center is a non-profit, grass-roots collaborative effort designed to enrich the social, spiritual, and cultural values of the youth and families in Monessen, Pennsylvania. Our mission is to build a safe and enriching community for families and youth in Monessen through the provision of service-oriented and Christian-focused activities.

"With great hope, strong faith, and the
availability of necessary supports and programs,
our children, families, and community
will thrive, achieve, and succeed.”

The Schooner Center houses a spectrum of youth and family programs coordinated by faith-based and private non-profits committed to providing safe and enriching community programs and activities. Through collaboration, partnerships, and community support, the Schooner Youth Center coordinates targeted activities and resources necessary to build strong, successful, and thriving families in Monessen and surrounding Mon Valley Communities.
