About the Event
The Youth First Partnership organizes a day to provide training opportunities, promote networking, and to increase awareness of community based resources. Training sessions cover a wide variety of topics. These informational sessions will address youth issues and related topics and are led by community professionals. This event also provides opportunities for both profit and nonprofit vendors of child related services to present an overview of their programs. Participants of this event are professionals from various programs and agencies within the community including social workers, probation officers, and mental health workers.
Community support is integral to the process of moving towards our mission. Businesses can become community partners by sponsoring the Youth First Partnership with a tax-deductible contribution or by sponsoring a part of the event (Youth First Partnership is a 501C3 organization through the Office on Youth). Community partnership will support the continued efforts towards building a stronger community for our youth.
