Catherine Madison of Mt. Pleasant

Program Operations Coordinator at Lake Erie Ink

Catherine Madison joined MyCom while participating in the Youth Advocacy Network at Mt. Pleasant Community Zone at age 16. She attended the University of Toledo and graduated in Fall 2017 Cum Laude. She is now a Program Operations Coordinator for Lake Erie Ink: a writing space for youth. She loves what she does and being able to help youth.

“Being a part of MyCom helped transform my life. Through MyCom I had the opportunity to become a peer leader and explore college campuses. I was able to see life outside of Mt. Pleasant. Through MyCom I was able to network and find my passion in community work and non-profit work. Because of MyCom I became more focused and decided to attend college.”


  • “MyCom Youth Development Initiative aims to engage via education, such amazing out-of-school opportunities as they recognize that youth who are bullied are more likely to feel disconnected from school."
    Curtis Benjamin
  • "MyCom has extended hundreds of youth exceptional opportunities to grow, expand their knowledge and express their voice in so many ways. I can honestly say that the youth are not the only ones who are learning, growing and having wonderful exposure opportunities. This adult is a beneficiary of countless blessing as well."
    Brenda Pryor
    MyCom Coordinator
  • "It was amazing, and really made me think of my community more, and how I can change it"
