The 2020 Passport to Adventure Virtual Auction supports Youth First’s efforts to transform lives and strengthen young people and their families, resulting in more positive, productive citizens and a stronger, healthier community. The organization is best known for embedding Youth First Social Workers in 85 schools across 11 Indiana counties, along with family programs, community prevention coalitions, and strategies to prevent underage substance abuse.

During COVID-19, Youth First has deepened its commitment to cared-for kids. The organization has pivoted to deliver programs and services on virtual platforms and provide social and emotional resources to help families take care of their mental health. Even when school buildings closed in March, Youth First Social Workers continued to act as caring mentors and a lifeline of support to Indiana children.
