Guiding youth to discover their unique talents and potential for success – One Life at a Time
Waterbury Youth Service System, Inc. is a non-profit agency dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth in the Greater Waterbury Region.
Our method is simple. Give our youth the tools they need to succeed; safety, belief in themselves, hope, encouragement, caring and opportunities.
They can-and do-become productive citizens.
Bullying can be prevented, especially when the power of a community is brought together. Our youth participated in a bullying prevention “event”. The event gave the youth a safe place to freely discuss this important topic and start to create plans to take action in local communities. They also created anti bullying posters to raise awareness.
A group of our youth joined Outside Perspectives for some exciting games, initiatives, and an opportunity to give back to a local park. The group worked together at Fulton Park to remove overflowing bags of trash which had been polluting the beautiful park pond for many months, if not years. How grateful we were to see these youth willing to put in such a strong effort to help their community.
