Our Mission

Building our Youth for the Future


To actively engage youth, their families, and the community to ensure youth have the five fundamental promises they need to succeed:

  1. Caring Adults

  2. Safe Places

  3. A Healthy Start

  4. Effective education

  5. Opportunities to Help Others


To build our youth for the future where they are more likely to succeed academically, socially, and civically, regardless of ethnic or economic boundaries.

Youth First is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization developed by the Northwest Anoka County Community Consortium (NWACCC), a collaboration of Anoka-Hennepin School District 11, Anoka County, and the cities of Andover, Anoka, Coon Rapids, and Ramsey.
