Youth United, a high school leadership program of United Way of Okaloosa and Walton Counties, works to engage teens in community service. We want to make it easy and FUN for teens to get involved and serve the community!
Our vision is:
•To empower YU members by providing them opportunities, resources, leadership, and support so they can make positive impacts in our community.
•To educate youth on community issues by highlighting their causes and exploring ways to resolve and prevent the problems.
•To raise awareness of volunteer opportunities within our community and make it easy and fun for youth to get involved in community service.
•To aid youth in developing lifetime commitments to community service.
We hope that through their experiences with Youth United, our YU members will grow into strong and committed community leaders capable of making positive changes in our world
