Why did Youth Allies® begin?

The idea for Youth Allies® came to fruition with the initial planning for Allies in Community® in the 2016 community engagement surveys and focus groups. A call for youth programming has continued since that time. Like Allies in Community®, Youth Allies® aligns with the City of Coppell’s goals of fostering a learning environment for residents that promotes inclusion, connection, and belonging. It offers young participants an environment that builds confidence, leadership, and interpersonal communication skills in the Coppell community and beyond.
