The Youth Foundation is a group of students from Washington County committed to making our community a better place to live. The board has up to 21 members; three sophomores, juniors and seniors from Eastern, Salem and West Washington and 12 others who can be sophomores, juniors or seniors at any school or are home schooled.

During the school year the Washington County Youth Foundation will offer one grant cycle, several community service activities and one peer community awareness/asset development event. Also, Washington County Youth Foundation members will be expected to be volunteers in the Happily Ever After Project. All members make financial contributions to support the service activities of the Youth Foundation.
