The Northfield Union of Youth (NUY) is the longest-running youth-run youth center in the nation. The NUY is located in downtown Northfield, Minnesota, in a building called The Key, named after a co-founder of the NUY that unexpectedly died weeks before the Key’s grand opening. The NUY’s mission is “to give power and voice to area youth and create a caring community.” The NUY/Key serves as an after school drop-in center for youth ages 12–20 and offers daily programming including Art Night, Film Club, Photo Club, Movie Night, Writers' Workshop, Game Night, and Anime Club.
