Our History

The Overtown Youth Center (OYC) was founded in 2003 by NBA Hall-of-Famer Alonzo Mourning and real estate developer Martin Z. Margulies in hopes of creating a safe haven for children living in Overtown. For over 13 years, OYC has been providing holistic programming to help youth avoid falling victim to poor education, poverty and crime. The center has graduated 100% of its high school seniors since inception and continues to send a majority of its students to college.
