What Is Connect?

Connect is an Adolescent Health initiative of the Mary Black Foundation, promoting adolescent friendly services, supports, and opportunities throughout Spartanburg.


What We Do

Connect collaborates with local adolescent-serving agencies to build capacity in adolescent friendly services and implement evidence-based interventions. Connect brings awareness of adolescent issues and breaks down barriers to address the needs of youth. Connect seeks to improve the outcomes for our most valuable resource: our teens.


Who Are Our Partners?

Connections are made with those organizations that want to impact adolescent health outcomes, from health care service providers, schools, faith communities, non-profit organizations, state agencies, law enforcement, employers, teen advocates and trusted community members. Connect works with these partners to help build their capacity for providing seamless adolescent friendly services, supports and opportunities to the youth of Spartanburg.
