©2019 by Youth First Community of Promise.

Board of Directors

Youth First was established and is led by the active collaboration of the Northwest Anoka County Community Consortium (NWACCC). The entities that comprise this award winning model include: the cities of Andover, Anoka, Coon Rapids, and Ramsey, Anoka County, and Anoka-Hennepin School District #11.

The Joint Powers Agreement reflects the first time in Minnesota history that five units of government collaborated to impact young people’s lives and were awarded the National Association of Counties Award for its replicable and effective programming with at-risk youth and families.
