What They Do…

The Urban Light Youth Center (ULYC) is located just a few blocks from Chiang Mai’s Red Light District. The Center is a place where boy’s, ages 14-24, can seek 24 hour shelter and refuge from the many harsh realities that life on the street offers.


Education & Empowerment: Provide boys with English based services including but not limited to english, life skills, music lessons, professional development and vocational training.

Health Services: On site health clinics, HIV/STI testing center, medical check ups and pharmacy visits.
