What is Northfield Union of Youth (NUY)?

NUY is a youth-led youth services organization serving youth throughout the Northfield, MN area. Our mission is to provide power and voice to youth and to create a caring and enriching community. Youth are the experts on youth. We provide a platform and a system for youth to fully address the needs they see in the community, the ideas they have to enrich their community, and the support to ensure that they are never alone.

NUY prioritizes the need to amplify youth voice, opinion, and perspective. NUY works collaboratively with Northfield Schools, Health Care Providers, County Services, Law Enforcement, and a host of other organizations and institutions to meet the needs of Northfield’s youth. NUY combines supportive services with enrichment activities to make a meaningful impact. This includes supports around mental health, housing, academics, employment, art, music, recreation, social justice and so much more.
