Western Youth Network

About Western Youth Network

WYN recognizes a simple truth—growing up is hard, especially during those pivotal years from 5th through 10th grade. WYN invests in the lives of children and youth in order to build a better future and a stronger community for the High Country. We truly are “raising a community” and we do this by providing unique and quality programming that offers individualized support to over 200 children and youth each year in our Mentoring and After School Initiatives alone.

“Being a GIS Intern at WYN let me expand my GIS skills as well as employee, on-the-job skills. As a first job experience and first internship experience, WYN was very understanding and welcoming to me. My internship project has been used within the community and has influenced the work of others. It has been such a rewarding experience! ”
