Created in 1996, the Hopewell Valley Municipal Alliance’s vision is Hopewell Valley - a community united in the development of caring, confident and responsible youth.
The Hopewell Valley Municipal Alliance (HVMA) supports and administers programs and activities in Hopewell Valley that promote positive youth development and build community.
Healthy Communities • Healthy Youth
Healthy Communities • Healthy Youth is a community partnership created in Hopewell Valley in 1995. It is a unique approach that empowers the community to promote the positive development of its children and teens.
By bringing various community sectors together and learning the benefits of developmental assets experienced by youth, we are building a healthier community and healthier youth. These developmental assets are 40 positive supports and strengths young people need to succeed. Research consistently shows that young people from all backgrounds do better when they have a strong foundation of these strengths in their lives and in addition are less likely to engage in at-risk behaviors.
These developmental assets are woven into the programs the Alliance coordinates and supports such as peer to peer drug and alcohol prevention programs, social, emotional learning programs, teen job and community service fair, youth leadership opportunities and community-wide events.
The Hopewell Valley Municipal Alliance Executive Committee meets the 4th Thursday of January, March, May, September and October at 8:00 AM. If you are interested in attending any of our meetings, please contact us.
