Youth United

Youth United (YU) is an initiative that promotes advocacy and action among young people by using positive values and philosophy. YU advocates are passionate and not afraid to have courageous conversations about bullying, gun violence, human trafficking, substance use, mental illness, diversity, equity and inclusion, and breaking down stigmas and stereotypes.

There are many ways to get involved if you’d like to join the team, attend one of our many events or learn more how you and your friends can share mental health and wellness tools with others.
