We change lives.

Youth First

Created in 1998, the mission of the Youth First committee is to promote and support positive youth development through the integration of the 40 Developmental Assets®. The committee works to promote the “good stuff” young people need to grow up healthy, make positive choices and be resilient in tough circumstances.

Who is involved?

The United Way Youth First Committee is made up of representatives from community organizations, including local municipalities, Anglophone East School District and District scolaire francophone sud, government, local and provincial youth-serving agencies, the faith community, RCMP Community Policing, and United Way.
