Youth Pages

You're probably juggling a lot of things: school, activities, friends, family and jobs. Each of these can cause stress - but don't need to take over your life.

The Human Trafficking & Social Justice Institute at the University of Toledo in partnership with the United Way of Greater Toledo and the Lucas County Human Trafficking Coalition are pleased to provide a wealth of resources to help teens make sound decisions. Parents, guardians and teachers are always the best resource for advice. In addition to the Toledo Youth Pages App and mobile website, we hope teens use the Toledo Youth Pages handbook or call United Way 2-1-1 as alternatives for answering questions. And remember, when you call United Way 2-1-1 it is completely confidential.
