GET INVOLVED

Help transform the way youth in Muskegon County receive services!

MYalliance has a governance board and several committees that help direct the activities of the initiative. Youth, parents and youth-serving staff from around Muskegon County make up these various teams. Those interested in getting more engaged are encouraged to join one of the committees and help further the work of MYalliance.

Additionally, by attending coss-system trainings, becoming better educated on the system of care model and philosophy, and helping to build a more trauma-informed community... you're already involved!
