Find your underlying potential

The Epicenter exists to empower at risk and system involved youth ages 16-24 to flourish by connecting them to community resources that provide opportunities for equity and hope in order to improve youth outcomes in Monterey County.

The Epicenter is a replication of the VOICES centers in Napa and Sonoma Counties. We are a youth led and youth-run organization that works towards empowering at risk youth by providing them with a one-stop resource center. One of the ways we are able to provide multiple resources is by having co-located staff on site. Co-located staff are employees of other agencies that provide their services at our center. We provide the connection to resources like housing, education, employment, and mental/physical health and wellness.
