YouthWorks is a non-profit, community-based organization that creates opportunities for disconnected youth and families in Northern New Mexico to become engaged and valued members of their communities. Through our programs; job training and placement, life skills, counseling, education, and leadership development, we inspire youth to realize their full potential.
