Community Action Youth Programs has sites in Greenfield, Northampton and in the North Quabbin. Please feel free to contact any of our staff for additional information regarding our programming.


Due to concern around the COVID-19 virus and directives from the State of Massachusetts, Community Action Youth Programs has suspended all in-person group programming. Individual services are being provided remotely, as our staff is working off-site at this time. 


Looking to get in contact with a member of our staff? Please send them an email! You can also leave a message at (413) 834-2169 and we will get back to you as soon as we can. 


If you or someone you know is interested in joining our Generation Q programming, contact Tyanna Daniel Lionheart. For our Young Adult Action Board, contact Myck LeMay. To receive information about ShoutOut!, send an email to Lydia Davis. For WIOA, contact Noemi Lasalandra or Hayley Johnson. Send an email to Noemi Lasalandra if you are looking for YouthWorks information. If you are looking for the Young Parent Program, reach out to Jena Duncan


We know these are tough times for everyone, and we would like to provide support to you as best we can.
