Research shows the number one protective factor for youth is having a relationship with a trusted adult. It Starts with You: Engage, Listen and Connect is a community information campaign designed to provide encouragement and resources to adults and prompt meaningful conversations and relationship development with youth.
Started in 2018 and informed by community surveys and focus groups, It Starts with You: Engage, Listen and Connect shares data and tools for discussions with youth of all ages in the Snoqualmie Valley.
