Our Purpose: to unite Valley high schools, which include Ansonia, Derby, Emmett O’Brien, Oxford, Seymour, and Shelton, to work together on community service projects that will meet the needs of our community.
Our Goal: to provide the opportunity for high school students to interact with students from different schools to learn and practice leadership skills, to develop a wider knowledge of community needs, and to implement at least one major joint volunteer project a year that will make a great impact on our Valley community.

The 2015-2016 Valley United Way High School Volunteer Council kicked off its year by spending the day at Camp Jewell in Colebrook, CT. Students from all 6 high schools along with their Advisers were on hand to participate in team building initiative that will help them get to know one another and create a plan for their upcoming year!
