WPY Supported Projects
The Waltham Youth and Community Coalition
WYACC is a community coalition working together to make Waltham a safe, healthy, just and engaged community where all young people can thrive.
Our mission is to support a culture of mental health and wellness, free of substance misuse, for Waltham youth by connecting all sectors of the community, addressing root causes, and promoting advocacy, education, and policy change.
We monitor our progress, in part, by administering the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) every two years. Click below to read YRBS reports by year:
