What is Youth United?
Youth United is an initiative of the United Way of Sampson County to help today’s high school students learn that responsibility and giving back to their community are important steps to creating a positive future. By promoting philanthropy, leadership development and character building among local high school students, we believe these students will serve as positive role models and help improve our community.
Who can join Youth United?
High school students ages 14 – 19. Youth United is a fun service oriented club at many area high schools. Currently, there are student clubs at Clinton High School, Harrells Christian Academy, Hobbton High School, Lakewood High School, Midway High School, and Union High School in Sampson County. If you are an interested high school student, please visit us on facebook at Youth United of Sampson County.
