Due to rising COVID cases, we are postponing the United for Youth block party.

We hope to host this event in the near future when we can all be together safely and in the truest spirit of this event - a fun, interactive, family-friendly event celebrating our students, families, schools, and community partners.

We'll be in touch soon with a new date and time and meanwhile, here's to the start of a safe and healthy new school year for all! 



Join us for a BLOCK PARTY where we'll celebrate the youth and families of our community and prepare for a new school year.

United for Youth logo

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.
