Youth Initiatives

Helping teenagers build healthy, successful futures

NVFS’ Youth Initiatives programs provide teenagers and young adults with the skills and resources needed to build healthier well-being – at school, at home and within their communities. These skills and resources include job readiness, test preparation, connections to creative activities, and healthy relationships with friends and family. Providing our youth with these tools helps them build brighter futures not only for themselves, but for their community as well.

NVFS Youth Initiatives staff work closely with school systems across Northern Virginia to ensure that services are provided effectively. Because of NVFS’ comprehensive service approach, Youth Initiatives staff are easily able to connect clients and their families other NVFS services, including mental health counseling, health care access and immigration legal aid, to more effectively build a lasting, healthy well-being.
