International studies show that one in three women will experience abuse by a significant other in their lifetime, while 40% of all murdered women are killed by their husbands or lovers. These statistics are staggering, but Every Woman's Place and Webster House Youth Services are here to strengthen families. Our programs range from domestic violence prevention to youth programs geared toward helping youth make positive decisions about their lives.
Are you a local high school student?
Would you like to be involved in our community?
Looking for a great service learning project?
If so, then we have the perfect opportunity for you! Webster House Youth Services is currently looking for youth between the ages of 13 and 19 to be a part of their Youth Advisory Board (YAB).
The YAB's mission is to give local youth the opportunity to be who they want to be, as well as help them grow as individuals and as part of the community through service learning projects. Past projects have included: planting dune grass for the city parks, serving meals at supper houses, and assisting the Salvation Army during the holidays.
The Board spends an average of 10 to 15 hours (or 3 to 4 evenings) a month together.
If you would like to be involved and share your ideas, contact Meredith Gager at 759-7909 ext. 256 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now you can make donations online and help support our efforts to continue providing the community with the services it so desperately needs.

The Webster House Youth Advisory Board has been working closely with BOOM! from Public Health to plan a summit for youth based on issues they feel are important to them. The Real Voices, Real Choices Youth Summit is open to youth in Muskegon County, and will provide them with resources and information about relationships, substance use, and violence prevention. It should be a great experience for them, so please spread the word!
