Lexington United has been working to develop youth since its inception

Our in-depth training helps youth discover their leadership abilities by teaching them
about group dynamics, conflict reduction, prejudice reduction, and building community.
We offer a number of different opportunities for youth to get involved
– we host several camps throughout the year,
and offer programming to local schools and community centers.
