Step Up for Our Youth
We believe in the power and potential of successful, resilient youth to create thriving communities.
The United Way of Northern Arizona is investing in the power and potential of successful, resilient youth. Following are three community-inspired initiatives we believe are essential to achieving positive social change and sustainable impact for our youth and community.
Early Childhood Development
This initiative will improve social-emotional development, cognitive language skills, early literacy, mathematics, and science learning while increasing support and knowledge for educators, nonprofits, parents, and caregivers. This will help ensure that children meet developmental milestones that lead to success throughout their lives.
Positive Youth Development
This initiative is based on the principles of the 6 C’s which include confidence, character, connection, competence, caring and contribution. This positive framework will guide our community in organizing services, opportunities, and support to assist our young people in reaching their full potential.
