Our Mission

Valley Youth Connections strives to positively influence youth in our community and help them succeed in the field of academics and juvenile judicial complications. Here, we strive to instill in our youth, the practices that are essential for progression through life skill development, evidence-based programming, and classroom simulation. Our goal is to ensure every child and student that we serve gets connected in our community.

Valley Youth Connections, LLC is a locally owned company that wishes to invest in the future of our community; our youth. The community is in need of a safe and structured place in which children can develop skills that are necessary for success in their future. Shelley Hall and Christine Wilson, the Co-owners of VYC, have set out on a mission to create an environment that is designed to support and enhance youth development in the panhandle of Nebraska. 

Valley Youth Connections has evolved into a multi-tier support system that is capable of reaching kids at any level of need. We offer an abundance of services as listed.
