As their name suggests, they always put our youth first, but what does that really mean? What does Youth First actually do for our kiddos?

Youth First exists to transform and strengthen the lives of young people and their families. We are the only organization that provides Masters level social workers in area schools and prevention programs for youth and families. On-site, free-of-charge behavioral health services and programs prevent substance abuse, improve family relationships, and develop life skills.

Take advantage of the online auction happening now, and then join us at Bally's Evansville on April 25th for an evening of philanthropy and fun. Together, let's embrace the opportunity to support Youth First and ensure a brighter tomorrow for the next generation.
