Youth Service Project, Inc. is dedicated to working with youth by cultivating relationships through safe, supportive, and creative programming to maximize their strengths and navigate their lives.

From Executive Director...

This winter season has been so marred with freezing cold snaps and record setting snow fall. Despite this, many in the field of social services keep our doors open providing services and solace to hundreds of children and families all across our city. Kudos goes to the staff and volunteers for their unwavering dedication. At YSP we are gearing up for an exciting year with lots happening: capital improvement plan, program expansion, more collaboration with more partners, and more jobs for youth. Our re- entry program continues to grow as the need for services designed to help youth come back and thrive in their communities increases. The youth development programs: dream explorers, dream mappers, and dream navigators aim to help them break barriers and achieve their fullest potential while navigating their career landscape. Our collaboration in schools throughout our community helps in reaching our clinical, mental health services and our anti-bullying program. And we look forward to an even larger summer youth employment program and to the great support from our employer partners. No polar vortex can stop us from fulfilling our work and mission. And speaking of mission, read on to learn more about our recently reviewed mission and vision statement, redefining and calibrating our efforts and organization.
