OUR INFRASTRUCTURE

 

 The Youth Services Bureau operates under the administration of part-time staff along with the Commission on Youth Services (CYS).  The CYS has been established to serve in an advisory capacity and support the mission and staff of the Youth Service Bureau. Members are appointed by the Board of Selectman and represent various segments of the community including law enforcement, education, children and families, and local business and organizations.

 

The goal of the CYS is to advocate for our youth population by evaluating priority needs and interests on an ongoing basis and assisting the YSB in the development of appropriate programs and services.

 

Meetings are held every 3rd Monday of the month and are open to the public.
