Youth Together is now the Youth Impact Committee
Youth Together was formed in November of 2017 and was re-branded the Youth Impact Committee in 2019. This group of young adults meets monthly to offer support, collaborate and advocate for youth in Erie County.
How can the Youth Impact Committee Help
The Youth Impact Committee offers weekly support groups in the in-patient unit of LECOM Health's Millcreek Community Hospital to those ages 14-26 years old. They also offer a youth perspective on the way services are delivered and can be a great asset to those developing programs and policies that impact transition-aged youth.
Our Mission is to Enhance the Erie Community by Educating, Collaborating, Mentoring, Advocating and Supporting Young Adults
Your feedback is important to us. Please consider taking our Young Adult Survey.
