What Daviess County says about Youth First

“Having a Youth First Social Worker in the building is just invaluable. I really believe it helps our students with challenges better adjust so they can perform in school, so they can see their potential, and they have a person to work with them on a very consistent basis. We’re helping a lot of kids, and we’re making an investment in our entire community one family at a time.”

“To be able to have a dedicated Youth First Social Worker in our schools to reach our young people at a crucial time in their lives is a sound investment.”

“As Assistant Principal, I am responsible for disciplinary action in the Junior and Senior High School. Since having Krisi (Youth First Social Worker) in our building, I can fully attest that the number of disciplinary cases making their way to my office has reduced dramatically. Krisi’s been a great addition to our North Daviess team, and we’re glad to have her.”
