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.
Safe Place...Spreading The Word
During 2013 National Safe Place week, WYSS staffed an information table at Naugatuck Valley Community College to highlight this important community resource. We distributed 70 spirit bands and 50 Text 4 Help cards with information on Safe Place and neighborhood locations. All promotional items were purchased through the generous funding of Thomaston Savings Bank. Through community outreach such as this, Safe Place has come to be increasingly recognized and utilized by Waterbury’s youth.
10 Years Of Making Dreams Come True
This year Waterbury Youth Service celebrated 10 years of making dreams come true! Over the years, hundreds of local girls have attended their prom feeling and looking like a princess because of the Perfect Prom Project Boutique. Thank you to everyone who has generously donated of their time and resources to make this heart warming event possible.
