About Worcester Youth Center
The Worcester Youth Center (WYC) is an educational, recreational and social facility for youth between the ages of 14-24, a place where youth are empowered and allowed to grow in all aspects of their lives. The Center started as a partnership between youth and adults. Opening its doors in 1994, the Center was the culmination of three years of planning by youth, city officials, other youth organizations, and adult advocates. Together, youth and adults envisioned a drop-in center that would be open to all adolescents throughout Worcester. It would charge no fees for membership or programs. Most importantly, it would be a place where youth could participate in operating the Center, shaping programs, delivering activities, and be voting members of the Board of Directors.
