Coal Country Hangout Youth Center

Who We Are

  • The Coal Country Hang-Out Youth Center (CCHYC) is a 501 (c) (3) organization that began in 2001 as a response to the social and human service needs in Northern Cambria County. The Coal Country Hang-Out Youth Center is designed to offer programs needed to counteract the devastation experienced by families in a geographically isolated and economically deprived area. CCHYC’s goal is to continue and to expand a holistic approach to educational, cultural, and spiritual devastation experienced by families as the result of the collapse of it’s primary industry, coal mining. These young people are increasingly at risk in an emerging global economy with its attendant language and cultural diversities.
