Youth United.

Connection. Action. Recognition.

Youth United’s volunteer council of passionate Winnipeggers age 16-24 makes sure Winnipeg youth are connected to valuable volunteering, learning and skills development opportunities that inspire & celebrate youth leadership.

Youth United works to fund and support youth-driven projects that connect young people with the community, provide them with the skills and help they need to take action on issues most important to them, and recognize them for their contributions.
