My Commitment, My Community…That is MyCom.
The MyCom network offers opportunities – in school, in their neighborhood, on the job and for the future.
Whether young people are new to MyCom or already involved with a MyCom program, we can help them identify the best programs and community services to have fun, be safe, achieve their goals and become their best selves.
MyCom is a path to success – connecting young people with resources to achieve their goals and become their best selves.
