Youth are a vibrant, yet often underutilized, source of power for creating and leading positive community change—but that is not necessarily the case in North Central Massachusetts.
Young people involved in United Way Youth Venture (UWYV) through one of 15 partnering schools develop leadership skills, build confidence, provide countless services to their communities and most importantly, are given the chance to make lasting positive change in others as well as themselves. During the UWYV process, youth learn how to identify and confront problems, and find creative solutions. A consistent presence in the region over the past 14 years has changed the perception of how adults view youth in the communities served by UWYV.
