YouthMAX Program

Helping Youth Help Themselves and Others 

Community 1st Credit Union is proud to partner with Desi Payne, a John Maxwell Certified Instructor, to bring YouthMAX into local middle schools and high schools in Iowa. 

YouthMAX Program

Bullying, failure, low self-image, and poor character decisions are at the heart of many of the challenges facing young people today. This YouthMAX program inspires and equips young people to value themselves and others, by developing and maintaining a positive self-image, showing compassion to others, persevering in the midst of adversity, and creating a daily routine of successful attitudes and behavior. 

I Am Resilient Program

I Am Resilient is a program to help middle & high school students bounce back when life is difficult. Now, more than any time in history, we are all facing tremendous upheaval and uncertainty.  Teens are especially facing emotional and social turbulence.  This 45-minute session will help students learn to:

  • ​Get back up.
  • Take Responsibility.
  • Learn from mistakes.
  • Never Give Up.
  • Ask for help.

If you have ever wanted to make a difference in the lives of young people, these free programs have all the tools you need to be successful! Teachers and students will be engaged and listening to every word.
