We promote the well-being of Wilton's students
by empowering youth, parents and community.

Since its founding in the 1980s, Wilton Youth Council has focused on positive youth development – what kids need to grow into healthy, productive citizens.  Wilton Youth Council works closely with the social workers of Wilton Youth Services, a division of Wilton Social Services, to develop programs and services in three main areas:  parent education and connection, extracurricular programs for youth, and community-wide initiatives to bring about cultural shifts, such as changing the belief that underage drinking is a harmless rite of passage.


The Wilton Youth Council welcomes and relies on our dedicated volunteers. Please contact us to get involved!
