World Vision seeks to increase the well-being of children and youth in select communities within the U.S. where poverty is prevalent, including Twin Cities, MN. U.S. Programs do this by recognizing and enhancing the capacity of individuals, organizations and communities toward sustained child well-being by meaningful partnering together, and engaging and unleashing the power of children and youth.
• Our role collaborates with community-based organizations to identify areas in which training, support and resources can further strengthen work with children and youth.
• Our role helps build or support networks among community organizations to strengthen work for the well-being of children and youth within their families, institutions and communities.
