St. Paul Youth Services’ (SPYS) mission is to improve their community’s collective ability to engage and support all youth by pioneering and sharing proven practices. They partner with youth to build skills and resources to achieve their goals; guide nonprofits, schools, and public agencies in transforming their practices and cultures to be more youth-centric; and amplify youth voice in public policy in order to achieve measurably more positive and equitable outcomes for youth. SPYS partners with youth of color to transform all levels of influence on their lives: organizations, individuals, systems, and policies. The entire community benefits when youth are allowed to grow, thrive, and prosper consistently and equitably.
