Mendocino County Youth Project

County: Mendocino County

Mendocino County Youth Project (MCYP), or “The Youth Project,” was begun in 1974 by the Mendocino County Probation Department, supported by community advocates and local educators seeking solutions for youth who were having difficulty at school, in the community or in the home. MCYP became autonomous as a joint powers agency in 1992. MCYP programs include prevention and early intervention services through its Youth Action Program; counseling services and mental health support for young children and youth up to age 24 and their families; and transition age youth services.
