No Shave November

Raising Awareness of Behavioral Health Needs and Funding for the Access for All Program

At the regular City Commission Meeting Tuesday, November 5th, Valley City Commission President and Mayor Dave Carlsrud made an official proclamation, recognizing November 2019 as No Shave November. His proclamation designates the month as a time to raise awareness and funding for the Access for All Program.

No Shave November Contest & a picture from last night’s City Commission Meeting where Mayor Dave Carlsrud proclaimed November 2019 as No Shave November in an effort to raise awareness & funding for the Access for All program, founded by the Education Foundation in February 2016. Access for All provides funds for students attending Valley City Public Schools who are in need of behavioral health counseling services. Through the foundation’s partnership with The Village Family Service Center in Fargo, Access for All helps provide school-based behavioral health counseling and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor Katie Youngbauer, is available to all students in each school. The partnership with The Village has allowed VCPS to meet the growing behavioral health needs and has improved accessibility for students.

This No Shave November contest fundraiser is Access for All’s 2nd annual, focused around raising awareness about behavioral health and funds for the important resources that the program provides.
