Mission

The mission of the Union County Division of Youth Services is to deliver effective and accessible programs and services that help youth, young adults, and families reach their full potential. By working together with other government agencies, nonprofits and private sector supporters, the Division can help parents improve communication with youth, help youth perform better in school, avoid delinquency and other at-risk behaviors that can endanger their health and safety.

Our program initiatives offer a variety of opportunities for individuals seeking our services to learn critical thinking; problem-solving, communications, decision-making, and life skills that can assist families in improving their overall well-being.
