Promoting Positive Youth Development

Positive Youth Development utilizes resources within the home, school, and community to engage youth in an environment that prioritizes wellness as an integral part of identifying their personal goals as well as their social impact. We work with schools, after-school programs, youth-serving organizations and other community partners to promote nutrition, physical activity, and social, emotional and mental wellness in youth. We provide programming, resources, training, and technical assistance to help youth thrive in all areas of wellness.
