The Youth Coalition was formed to support community youth in co-decided fun activities as well as providing educational curriculums and life skills programs. Some of the activities that we have participated in were going to the GV Animal Shelter, Sahuarita Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Dave & Busters, Triple Play and learning the Too Good For Drugs program. The youth will learn how to work as a team, communicate, share ideas, and educate themselves with tools for becoming a more responsible contributor to their communities. We are meeting twice a month on Wednesdays, July 8th, July 22nd, August 5th, and August 19th from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm.
