United for Youth is a partnership between Asheville City Schools, Buncombe County Schools, the City of Asheville, Buncombe County, United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County, and local health, social service, higher education, and youth services community partners.

United for Youth partners work together with youth and family leadership to ensure educational outcomes are determined by the high quality of our schools and partner organizations, the abundance and accessibility of opportunities in our community, the strength of our collaborations, and are never again predictable based on a student's race, home language, family income, or any other dimension of identity.
