Youth First’s mission is to strengthen youth and families through evidence-based programs that prevent substance abuse, promote healthy behaviors, and maximize student success. Their whole objective is to prevent the bad and promote the good as early as possible in young people’s lives. They’re like preventative medicine for our community. Just think, if you could prevent disease from affecting your body, wouldn’t that make your quality of life better? In the same way, Youth First does this for our community by encouraging, training and supporting healthy behaviors and activities for the young people in our community. This will have tremendous long term effects on the quality of our community’s life.
We are very excited to be a small part of this organization’s plans for 2012. As a Signs of Support Grant Recipient, they will receive marketing materials to improve awareness of their events in our community.
