MyCom Violence Prevention & Intervention Strategies

MyCom is a youth development network comprised of community-based organizations that empower youth voices in action.  The foundation of MyCom is the belief that young people learning how to contribute their thoughts and ideas is essential as young people develop, but they also need practice to build these skills.

MyCom is proud to partner on both the national level and local levels to impact youth violence prevention and intervention positively.

On the national level, we are partnering with the Wallace Foundation, the Cities United, the Guardian Angels, and the Afterschool Alliance.

On the local level, we are partnering with:

Children at Play

City of Cleveland

Cleveland Guardian Angels

Cleveland Peacemakers Alliance

KHNEMU Foundation

99 Treasures

Partnership for a Safer Cleveland

Stop the Pain

  • “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."

    MyCom Coordinator
  • "It was amazing, and really made me think of my community more, and how I can change it"

MyCom will enact our mission with race and equality at the forefront of our work as we always have. We will use our thought-leadership, funding, advocacy, and network to redesign service delivery. Together we will rethink infrastructure and create solutions that eliminate access to healthcare, cyclical poverty, access to quality education, housing stability, and other barriers that have impacted black lives.
