The Mahomet Area Youth Club was established in 1994 as a satellite unit of the Don Moyers Boys and Girls Club. As a result of financial constraints in 2003, the Mahomet branch was slated for closure. Concerned about serving the youth of the community, a group of dedicated individuals, community leaders, and school administrators set a goal to keep the doors open. A new organization was formed and the Mahomet Area Youth Club was officially recognized as a registered 501(c)3 non profit youth organization in 2004.
Since that time, MAYC has been a community supported youth development program, dedicated to serving children between the ages of 6-18, who reside in Mahomet and the surrounding areas.
