We promote the well-being of Wilton's students
by empowering youth, parents and community.
Growing up has always had its joys and heartaches, but today’s teens confront a new landscape of social media, vaping, and rising rates of anxiety and depression. Wilton Youth Council equips students and parents with skills and information to make healthy decisions. Our professionally-led youth programs provide opportunities for leadership development and drug-free fun. We educate and support parents with inspiring speakers and events. Through our collaborations with partner organizations, we create a greater sense of community and strengthen connections among families.
Our educational events provide valuable information about proven, effective strategies
for nurturing connection and resilience.
Through welcoming, inclusive programs that promote healthy choices, we seek to prevent risky behavior among youth.
