The MCSH Youth Services Center helps eliminate barriers to education for students at MCSH, HDT and Mercer Central. My name is Melody Pike and I have been the Coordinator at MCSH since July, 2002 after working as an Instructional Assistant at Mercer Elementary for 2 years. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education/Special Education.
My primary goal is to help make each student ready for the "real world", be that of work or college. I offer many programs through the YSC such as Anger Management Counseling, Self Esteem, drug and alcohol prevention, teen pregnancy prevention, job skills,as well as texting and driving prevention and awareness.
There are many resources in Mercer County that I can refer students and families to that help provide food, clothing and other essentials at a time of need.
It is a privilege to work with the students at MCSH. They are intelligent, kind-hearted and exceptional young adults who will make a change in the world.
