Celebrated as the nation’s longest-running youth-led youth center, The Key is what Northfield Union of Youth is best known for. However, our impact extends well beyond these walls, as we proactively serve, empower, and engage youth throughout the Northfield community and beyond.
Our mission is to provide power and voice to youth and to create a caring and enriching community.
Who We Are
NUY is a youth-led youth services organization that provides a platform and a system for youth to fully address their needs, the ideas they have to enrich their community, and the support to ensure they are never alone.
Who We Serve
NUY removes all barriers for youth to participate. There are no qualifications, assessments, registrations, or fees. The Key is open to all youth ages 12–20 and housing support outside of the Key is available for youth up to age 24.
What We Do
NUY prioritizes the need to amplify youth voices, opinions, and perspectives. NUY combines supportive services with enrichment activities to make a meaningful impact. Youth are the experts on youth.
