Youth Asset Development

Newport News Public Schools students, staff, and families are committed to STAND Together for Youth. The Youth Development Department encourages students to grow to their full potential by providing supportive relationships, meaningful opportunities, and access to services that help them graduate college, career, and citizen-ready.

STAND Ready to Learn

Engaging Students

We work to engage students beyond the classroom by actively encouraging them to join clubs, activities, and organizations based on their interests. These organizations allow students to build on and highlight their strengths and learn about social responsibility. We offer more than 300 diverse student involvement options, from robotics, to Ultimate Frisbee, to Model United Nations!

STAND Out as a Leader

We value all students as resources and challenge them to use their gifts and talents by providing leadership opportunities which develop skills essential to success in school and throughout their lives.

Supporting Students

We understand that students are faced with many challenges and need support for various reasons. NNPS supports students through academic tutoring, mentoring, crisis support, and assistance for a variety of social and emotional needs. For example, we provide support for students dealing with homelessness, family conflict, or whose parents are deployed.
