As a leader and specialist in Student Life Centers since the mid-90's, MHTN asks from a student's perspective what they want on campus and how they can call it a place of their own.

The VOA Youth Center is designed to provide a safe and healing environment for the homeless youth of Utah, while contributing to the surrounding Granary and Central 9th Districts. The Center strives to be a model for the future, founded on ideas of choice, dignity, and acceptance--a model conceived by the young clients themselves:
“When the community sees the new VOA Youth Center, I want them to think that it is life changing, productive in helping youth take the next step to a better life" - a homeless youth, 2013
“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” -- Alvin Toffler - Writer, Futurist, and Scholar
As we embark into the 21st century, education continues to evolve and change as much as we humans do. The traditional “classroom” is no longer a stagnate place of learning, but rather a small community that joins together to facilitate learning in collaborative ways. MHTN is proud to be a part of and to lead the cause of progressive learning in the 21st century.
"Who couldn't use more culture - or learning - in their lives?" asks Editor-in-Chief Cindy Allen in the 2014 Interior Design Magazine's Best of Education & Culture publication. "Some of the most innovative and creative design work today is being done in institutions of learning, places of worship, summer camps and science labs - fostering community and enriching the lives of its occupants."
