Youth programming has been a key pillar of MCA's work since inception.  We are always looking for new ways to educate young people about co-ops and enourage them to become involved with their local co-ops.  

Currently MCA offers two main program areas for youth:

  • The Co-op Youth Leadership Retreats offer 3 1/2 days of co-op and leadership training in a beautiful camp like setting.  
  • The Cooperative Enterprise and Leadership Program is the newest youth co-op initiative. Implemented in 2014 at Children Of The Earth High School as a pilot project, it is an afterschool program that teaches cooperation and business basics while adopting a project based hands on approach as it leads to the start up, and the management of a student co-op.
