Youth Mentoring Connection's Story

Please help us build a safe haven for L.A.'s marginalized youth--An Urban Oasis!




Once a dream, YMC is finally on the threshold of opening the doors to our Urban Oasis. More than a building, Urban Oasis will be a healing space for our youth, a sanctuary where our community can come together once again.

We're raising funds through Change Reaction this year who is matching all donations up to $10k and 25% of all donations thereafter!!!

After 2 years of isolation, we were ready to welcome our mentees to the place we had been calling home, our landlord canceled our lease in favor of a higher-paying tenant. We’re determined to not ever let that happen again. So, this year for Giving Tuesday, YMC is excited to announce that the funds raised will go directly towards purchasing A BUILDING TO CALL OUR OWN

We have found a home in the heart of the community we serve and a place for us to gather together to do our life-changing work.

This is a huge step; and we need your help to make this dream come true! We need to raise $150,000 by the end of December to close on our new home.
