New Website Provides County Youth Services Information

Posted on May 4, 2019

Research has shown the value of responding to the problems of youth within their own communities. In New Jersey every county has a Youth Services Commission which is required to identify the unique needs of youth in their county, and to develop programs and services to help delinquency prevention, divert juveniles who get into trouble with the law from the court system and to provide alternatives to incarceration as well as services for youth after they are released from state facilities.

County Youth Services Commissions partner with stakeholders and community-based agencies to provide services “that are focused on enhancing and providing opportunities for youth to succeed.” The New Jersey Association of County Youth Services Commission Administrators created a website where you can learn more about what they do, find out how to get involved with your county’s Youth Services Commission and to learn about available programs and services and offered in your county and across the state to help youth.Please check the website out today!
