Support A Child Or Teen By Becoming A Sponsor
Funding youth programming and opportunities for children from kindergarten to high-school graduation is a smart way for communities to save money while investing in their neighborhood’s future.??In crime prevention costs alone, an after-school program, like the ones MyCom expands and develops, can save taxpayers and crime victims an average of $16,428 in crime costs for every youth served.

MyCom makes it easy to impact young lives.
A gift of $5.00 helps a child get started with a kindergarten learning kit.
$20 provides one tutoring session.
$100 can provide 15 hours of paid work experience. 
Please consider making a donation by visiting The Cleveland Foundation’s Give Online page and choosing the Youth Development Fund.

Are you satisfied paying for failure or are you ready to invest in success?
MyCom prepares and inspires youth for adulthood and for life, through proven programming. Prepared youth contribute to thriving, economically stable communities. The alternative is youth on the streets, many dropping out of school and remaining unemployed, draining resources rather than paying back in taxes. Invest in success.
