The Beginning

Youth are the future of our Nation. Yet many needy and the less privileged Youth, particularly those in the rural areas, are being left out from the mainstream of education and other opportunities. They are pleading to you and your organization to take them into consideration.

In answer to their plights, the Brothers of St. Gabriel established its first foundation known as Montfort Boys Town (MBT) in Shah Alam, Selangor in 1959. The demand for places had prompted the Brothers to reach out and establish Centres in Sabah and Melaka.

“A Home Truly Dear for Needy Youth” was established in Sabah in June 1999 on a 1.1-acre site in Donggongon, Penampang, starting with 15 Trainees on makeshift facilities. Gradually, the number increased to 70. With the steady support of the public, the corporate sectors, individual donors and Charitable Foundations, this humble beginning had begun to bear fruits after having equipped many Youth with character formation, technical skills, discipline, spiritual and moral values for dignified living.

Journey So Far
From 15 boys Trainees in 1999, we have 120 boys and 30 girls in our campus today. From 1.1-acre site in Donggongon, Penampang, we moved into a bigger site of 10.86 acres at Kinarut, where we have a residential campus, a skill development campus that hosted 4 workshops.

Our vision
A home truly dear for those whom the world neglects.

Our Mission
To develop Youth to their full potential

Our Aims and Objectives
The aims of Montfort are two-pronged, namely Character Formation and Skill Training. Being competent in skill is balanced with being disciplined in character so that the Youth are ready for gainful employment and become vibrant nation builders.

The objectives of Montfort are three-facet, namely –
• To provide residential care for Youth under its training programme
• To provide guidance and accompaniment for integral human development
• To provide foundational education and industrial skills development

Our Approach
MYTC’s two-year residential programme teaches living skills and is tailored to instil discipline, guidance, spiritual formation, soft skills and leadership skills. Our challenge is to cultivate the importance of good attitudes and positive traits which will sustain them as resourceful persons for their families, communities and society.
