Mission Statement

The mission of Youth First Communities of Promise mobilizes individuals and collaboratives to support experiences that ensure a healthy start, safe places, caring adults, marketable skills and service opportunities for young people in the greater community of Andover, Anoka, and Ramsey.


Youth First Communities of Promise is a local community initiative established out of a working group of the Northwest Anoka County Community Consortium (NWACCC). This collaborative entity includes the cities of Andover, Anoka, Ramsey, Anoka County and Anoka-Hennepin School District #11.

Over the past 17 years, Youth First Community of Promise (YFCoP) has actively served the youth and families in the cities of Andover, Anoka and Ramsey. Our program is modeled under a national framework established by "America's Promise" that was founded by General Colin Powell. The program identifies and delivers 5 Promises that children need to succeed through established "Sites of Promise."

By becoming a "Site of Promise" we have taken a pledge to actively engage not only our community youth, but the community itself, in fulfilling 5 specific promises: 1) safe places with structured and unstructured activities; 2) on-going relationships with caring adults; 3) a healthy start and future; 4) an effective education and; 5) opportunities to give back through community service. We collaborate with businesses, faith communities, schools, governments, law enforcement and individuals to make sure that the youth in our communities are given every opportunity to receive these promises.
