“Kid, you’ll move mountains! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way!” A well-known statement from Dr. Seuss, but many youth in Arizona suffer from economic, family and community concerns that make this statement of hope one that is far out of reach.  

Arizona comes in 46th in overall child well-being, a rank lower than last year’s report. Findings show that the state ranks 43rd in economic well-being, 44th in education, 40th in healthcare and 46th in family and community. (2017 Arizona Kids Count)

Arizona Youth Partnership provides education and training to support rural youth and families so they can reach full potential in life. We work in 11 Arizona counties, in places like Kingman, Lakeside, Globe, Marana, Catalina, Sahuarita, Bullhead City and Ajo.
