The mission of Union County Youth Services is to deliver effective and accessible programs and services that help kids reach their full potential.

By working together with other government agencies, nonprofits and private sector supporters, we can help kids perform better in school, and avoid delinquency and other at-risk behaviors that can endanger their safety.

Our youth development initiatives offer a variety of opportunities for students to participate in after school projects while learning critical thinking, problem-solving and communications skills that can lead to better career choices and brighter futures.

Youth Services can also assist students with finding
organizations that offer volunteer opportunities so
they can fulfill their educational or personal goals.
