Youth Go is a youth directed, supportive community which offers youth opportunities to learn, grow and feel comfortable with themselves and others.
Youth Go, Inc. is a non-profit youth drop-in center that was founded in 1969 by youth and supportive adults looking for a safe gathering place. Located on the border of Neenah and Menasha, Wisconsin, we are committed to making a lasting and positive difference in the lives of youth.
Through our no-cost Recreation, Education, and Support and Wellness Programming, Youth Go strives to provide underserved and at-risk youth in grades 5 through 12 with opportunities to do well in school, develop as individuals and prepare for their next step in life. We hope that through participation in programming, youth will learn about themselves, develop positive relationships with peers and adults, grow through their experiences, express their creativity, and cultivate their skills and potential in a safe and supportive environment. We want to provide youth with a place where they feel like they belong, accept them for who they are and where they are at, and make them feel cared about.
Youth Go is attended by youth of all family, socio-economic and cultural backgrounds, and the diversity among participants makes the center a very unique place. A special emphasis is placed on recruiting youth who are underserved by traditional after-school activities or who are “in most need” of our services.
