Make a positive and lasting impact in our community.

Communities in Lincoln County are ready to connect and engage youth and families in meaningful ways. At Unite for Youth, we work collaboratively with community partners to serve and strengthen families and deliver impactful programs that inspire engagement and expand opportunities to learn, grow, and thrive.

We’re Better Together

Like you, we want to be part of a community where youth and families are connected and engaged and have all they need to do and be their best.  By working together, we can expand our reach and make a real difference in every life.

Partner Training Resources

Center for Communities That Care

The Center for Communities that Care promotes the healthy development of young people and equips communities with the tools they need to identify problem behaviors, and connect community resources in ways that reduce risk, elevate protection, and leave a positive and lasting impact on the youth and families they serve.

Communities That Care
The Search Institute

The Search Institute

The Search Institute helps communities develop a shared language and understanding of the importance of Developmental Relationships as they relate to healthy youth development and flourishing..  Workshops and online resources provide youth and families with the information they need to create intentional connections that provide support, challenge growth, share power and expand possibilities for engaging with and contributing to the world around them.

The Montana Institute

The Montana Institute’s work is rooted in the core assumption “the good exists and is worth growing”.  Their Positive Community Norms framework and applications of HOPE (Healthy Outcomes through Positive Experiences) equip communities with a process for challenging misperceptions and creating messages that promote health and inspire behaviors that lead to healthier, happier, more resilient futures.  Find online resources to guide communities in working to advance positive childhood experiences.

Seeds Training

Seeds Training

Seeds Training designs and delivers educational programs that build life, leadership, and learning skills in students, teachers, and professionals around the world.  Each year, Seeds Training facilitates our annual Aspire to Inspire Youth Leadership Camp – a three day camp experience where youth in grades 7-12 are challenged to learn about themselves and others as they grow the skills and abilities they need to make a positive impact not only in their own life, but also in their home, at school, and in their community.
