Northern Youth Project

Northern Youth Project (NYP) was founded by teens in 2009 as a platform to develop skills that foster health, academic performance, and personal investment in their communities and the environment, for a brighter tomorrow today.

The initiative works to support the outcomes and opportunities for rural Northern New Mexico youth through hands-on art, agriculture, community service, and leadership projects that honor the past and look to the future.

Northern Youth Project serves young people ages 12 to 21, providing FREE programs and activities year round. The project works to empower teens in putting ideas into action: initiating projects they want to do, focusing on their interests, and engaging in activities driven by their passions.
