Tri-City Partners

Bloomington United for Youth is a supporter and partner with Tri-City Partners because we believe in their mission and organizational initiatives.

Tri-City Partners are leaders and residents from the communities of Bloomington, Edina and Richfield. Their purpose is creating support for work that helps the communities become places where people can live longer, healthier lives. The work they support addresses health risks through changing policies and creating changes that last.

  • Convene community partners to coordinate prevention efforts
  • Build awareness of effective practices , solutions, and resources
  • Provide trainings, forums, and workshops
  • Promote youth engagement opportunities
  • Monitor and communicate youth substance use trends
  • Strengthen community norms that will foster a lifetime of healthy choices
