What Martin County says about Youth First

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

“We want our children to not only be successful academically, but we want our children to be successful emotionally and socially. To succeed in one area and not the other two is to limit the success our students will be able to achieve once they leave our school.”

“The assistance and guidance that our children have available to them through Youth First is invaluable for their growth, well-being, and success as students and adults.”

“Youth First is a great fit in our community. In addition to placing a Licensed Social Worker in our schools, they have provided our Youth First Social Worker with a framework and menu of programs to help her best meet the needs of our students and the greater community. The work she is doing is crucial to the continued and future success of our young people and their families.”
