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.
