Young people who feel like they are heard, valued, and become actively engaged in their community are more likely become their community's leaders in adulthood. Developing those youth/adult partnerships now—and giving youth meaningful opportunities for involvement—is a valuable investment in the future of our communities and children.
Noble County is a community that values young people’s opinions, participation and outcomes. Our children are the future leaders and builders. Investing in their development and encouraging them to become engaged and involved in the community will produce a Noble County that thrives.
Our youth must become involved in Noble County, and they must be actively offered the meaningful and appropriate opportunities to become involved. Community and business members must be dedicated to cultivating our young people early and often and teaching them to become active community members and engaged learners for the betterment of our community.
