Youth First's mission is to strengthen youth and families through evidence-based programs that prevent substance abuse, promote healthy behaviors and maximize student success.  Substance abuse not only ruins lives but creates consequences for the entire community, including greater health care costs, additional accidents, higher crime rates, crowded jails, more dropouts, a weaker workforce, and increased taxes.  Youth First works closely with schools, churches, businesses, colleges, communities, and other agencies to provide a menu of proven programs and strategies, including school social work.
