- Youth United (YU) is a high school club. Members are working together to help further the mission of United Way of Washington County in their high school and local community.
- YU members find creative ways to raise awareness among their peers and the public about pressing issues in our community and the important work of United Way .
- YU members get involved in activities that help them develop and practice leadership skills, including public speaking and the importance of advocacy.
Where can you find a Youth United Club?
