The VT9to26 Coalition is a collective, action-oriented group working in partnership to achieve positive outcomes for all youth and young adults across Vermont. Our goal is to build a more holistic approach to youth development; with an even stronger focus on youth voice and youth rights. Drawing inspiration from the Vermont Youth Declaration of Rights, this group is committed to helping youth find what they need to be the best versions of themselves.
As a coalition, we support partners of youth in strengthening opportunities, programs, and support in the third space that recognize the rights of youth and increase positive youth outcomes.
We can work with youth to provide many opportunities for young people to be young and to grow into healthy and happy Vermonters.
Being a tween, teen, and young adult is a special time of life that deserves our celebration and recognition. Young people deserve to be seen, heard, and valued. We need to focus our attention on older youth for a number of reasons:
Meetings are always open to all who are interested in how to support youth ages 9 and up. While we are constantly moving forward and focus on grassroots change, new members are welcome to come when they can. Not everyone can make every meeting–that’s a given. Come when you can, plug in where you can, and let’s work together to make Vermont the best place to be a young person.
