About Youth First

Youth First Community of Promise (YFCoP) is an organization that is both ground-breaking and rooted in proven youth developmental practices.

Born in 1991 as Youth First, it was created by people who were able to reach across governmental boundaries and collaborate to reduce risky behaviors in youth in the communities of Andover, Anoka and Ramsey.

Over the past 19 years, Youth First Community of Promise has been actively serving the youth and families of its community. In 2005, Youth First became a “Community of Promise” under the framework established by the national program model of America’s Promise.

By becoming a “Site of Promise” YFCoP has taken the pledge to actively engage not only its community youth, but the community itself, in fulfilling five specific promises: caring adults, safe places, a healthy start and future, an effective education and opportunities to give back.
