What is The Key?

Check out this great video directly from the youth at The Key!


The mission of the Northfield Union of Youth is to provide POWER and VOICE
to area youth and to create a caring and enriching community.

The Northfield Union of Youth (NUY) supports and fosters youth-led ideas.  The Key is a substance-free, youth-run, youth center supported with leadership and resources by NUY.  It is a safe place for youth to feel welcome, encouraged, and an opportunity to get connected with adults and the Northfield community. All ideas for programs, projects and events are generated by the youth.

Our Organization

The NUY consists of two boards, the Youth Board (Advisory Board) and the Adult Board (Board of Directors). The Youth board meets weekly to plan programs, events, and general operations of the organization. Youth are encouraged to come and participate.
The Adult Board meets monthly to listen and help guide the youth if needed, as well as offer advice about any major purchases or spending.

ALL youth

Any youth ages 12-20 can be part of the Northfield Union of Youth and use The Key youth center.  There is not any registration or fees to be involved.
