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.
Marie and Pat Ciochetti Foundation
Marie and Pat Ciochetti were generous community minded people. After they passed away, their daughter, Ginny, started the foundation to honor them and help deal with her grief. The foundation members meet 6 times per year to collect new items. Books in March, sneakers in May, backpacks and school supplies in August, coats and food in November and toys in December. Foundation members come together and reach out to the community to help with donations. "It's a lot of hard work, but it's very rewarding", states Ginny. She also says whether it's a little or a lot, anything helps. The foundation has been very generous to Waterbury Youth Service System, Inc with donations of backpacks, school supplies, coats, boots, food and toys. Anyone interested in donating may contact Ginny at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 203-768-7810.
