A Little Bit About Youth & Family Services

 

Griswold Youth & Family Services exists to provide positive youth development and prevention opportunities for the young people of Griswold and surrounding communities. Located at the Griswold Community Youth Center in downtown Jewett City at the Slater Mill Mall, 39 Wedgwood Drive, the Youth & Family Services Department provides a number of activities to help area youth grow and flourish in a supervised and constructive setting.

Griswold Youth and Family Services is a member of the New London County Chapter as a Youth Services Bureau.  YSBs are the lead local agency in community planning, coordinating and evaluating primary, secondary and terciary prevention and treatment services for at-risk youth and providing oportunities for all youth to develop positively and function as responsible members of their communities.

 

YSBs, mandated by Connecticut General Statute Section 10-19m, act as advocates for youth and their families within their municipality for a network of resources, community outreach, family involvement and opportunities for children youth and their families.

The Community Youth Center's mission is to supply a safe haven for at-risk teens of Griswold and Jewett City.  We provide opportunities for our youth to make a positive difference in our town through community services and programming. Our goal is to create an environment that encourages our youth to become responsible citizens.  The Community Your   currently serves youth between the ages of  10 – 18 years old who are enrolled in the Griswold School System.  For more information, contact Director Ryan Aubin.
