The Youth Networking Alliance was created to align different parts of our region to the needs of our children. By collaborating, we remain in-the-know and also more effecting in offering the best educations and programs for parents, students and children who need them.
Previous YNA programs included:
“ACE – Adverse Childhood Experiences” with Becky Haas, Ballad Health

How it works
The Youth Networking Alliance meets every other month with 20 to 40 attendees representing schools, nonprofits, agencies, health departments, faiths, government, etc. Programming varies with a regular“State of the Schools” update each September.
