The Youth First Café is an opportunity for people who work in youth development in Washington County to come together to collaborate, network and strengthen individual efforts. The August meeting is the second in a series of four quarterly meetings throughout 2009 where youth development professionals will come together in cooperation and celebration. Each meeting highlights a guest speaker or program as well as networking time. This month Beth Armstrong will be sharing information about a new program in Washington County which focuses on strengthening fathers and families called Fathers Forever.
Often when working with youth, professionals come to a situation that is outside their scope of experience or are not aware of local resources which serve the various needs of youth and families. Through the Youth First Café, one of the goals is to help create a web of support in Washington County for youth, parents and families. A stronger, more aware web of support will enable workers to serve Washington County to the best of their abilities, ensuring that no child falls through the cracks but rather is caught by the web of support and raised up.
Youth First of Washington County is a program of the Washington County Community Foundation focused on utilizing the 40 Developmental Assets to engage and support the youth of Washington County.
