The Connected Youth program offers support and opportunity for families, young adults, and children.  

We work to connect youth to our community by creating safe and supportive programs to help all children develop and thrive. A large part of what we do helps youth develop into future leaders through mentorship, volunteerism, and college/career readiness.
