Our Mission: To provide a platform for youth of all backgrounds and abilities to serve their community and gain leadership experiences through volunteerism.
What is Youth United?
Youth United is a unique, locally sponsored program that encourages and rewards students grades 9-12 for volunteering within their community. Over the course of the program year, students who volunteer a total of 60 hours or more are eligible to receive a varsity letter in community service. Traditionally the hour requirement is 145, but that has been reduced due to COVID. The program year runs from April 1st to March 31st of each year.
“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”
— Audrey Hepburn
Youth United History in NCW
Since the program’s conception in 2009, Youth United has been an asset for our community. In 2020 Youth United Community Partners was created to collaborate and keep this program strong for our communities. The idea behind Youth United was to recognize, reward, and encourage volunteering among the young people of the Greater Wenatchee Valley. Youth United aims to offer programs that promote community awareness and service along with responsibility and accountability in our youth. By joining the Youth United movement, young people can connect with meaningful volunteer opportunities, develop leadership skills, advocate for important issues, and earn recognition for their service.
