About Morpheus Youth:
Morpheus Youth Project builds healthy communities for young people thru arts and culturally responsive activities. Through Arts and Culture, MYP provides healthy expressive outlets and helps to build identity and self-awareness for youth in underserved communities and in youth correctional facilities.
We focus on three strategic areas, which includes outer East Portland and Gresham, entry level juvenile detention centers such as Multnomah and Marion County Juvenile Detention and at long term facilities like MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility. In this way, we position ourselves in key areas along the school to prison pipeline where underserved communities can intersect with positive and healthy MYP activities.
