    The McVay Youth Partnership

    The McVay Youth Partnership (Youth-VOICE) offers a safe, fun place for middle and high school students. Students spend time with their friends creating art, music, drama and can receive help with their homework. Service projects and presentations by local leaders enable students to explore the community.

    The McVay Youth Partnership is staffed by experienced and energetic McVay Fellows, Associates, Specialty Associates, and Interns. All fellows, associates, and interns receive training and are supported by Hamline University staff.

    The program is free and open to all students in grades 6-12 who are willing to follow these basic rules:

    • Respect yourself

    • Respect others

    • Respect property

    The McVay Youth Partnership is a university-church partnership funded by a generous endowment from the McVay Family Foundation. It embodies the mission and vision of Hamline University and is officed through the Wesley Center.

    Programming occurs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 3:30-6PM at Path of Grace, Mounds Park UMC, The Beloved, and Liberty Plaza.

    McVay plans to resume in-person programming on Monday, October 4th, 2021. Stay tuned for more information.
