Youth at UW

Historically, universities are set up to serve adult students, faculty, researchers and staff. However, we serve tens of thousands of young people each year in a myriad of ways. The Office for Youth Programs Development and Support works in partnership with stakeholders throughout the UW system to address and improve the University’s ability to be a welcoming and safe place for youth.

Contact us for more information and to invite this office to participate in initiatives that will enhance the experience of youth engaging with UW.
