Youth Connections Magazine

The December issue of YC Magazine is here!
In this issue, we focus on a variety of important
topics, including self-management, stress, anxiety,
navigating self-time vs. family time, and opioids.
Also, with ecigarette use at an all-time high, we have
provided a resource for teens who are addicted.

Recovery Guide

The Midland County Treatment & Recovery Coalition,
an affiliate of The Legacy Center and Ten16 Recovery Network,
created a referral guide that includes a comprehensive list of
community resources and available options on drug addiction,
from detox, residential treatment and outpatient services, to
peer support and help for families and teens.

Literacy Services

The Legacy Center turns the dream of being able to
read and understand language into a reality.
Through 3 core programs, The Legacy Center guides
many individuals in the direction of achieving their goals.

Developmental Assets

Developmental Assets are positive qualities that influence
young people's development, helping them become caring,
productive adults. The Developmental Assets framework has
proven to be an effective approach in positive youth development.

Volunteers Needed!

The Legacy Center offers a variety of volunteer opportunities -
from one-day projects that are perfect for high school students
to longer-term efforts that change the lives of children, youth
and adults in the Midland area.

Midland Youth Survey

The Legacy Center has lead the Developmental Assets
effort in its home town of Midland for the past 11 years.
as a result, the average number of assets among our youth
population has increased from 19.9% to 21.9%.
