The Office of Youth Development serves as a resource and advocacy voice for the community on information about youth programs, training opportunities for people who work with youth and funding and/or current reports that have a connection to the youth in our community.



The mission of the Office of Youth Development (OYD) is to build collaborations and partnerships to meet the needs of young people by coordinating programs and services and advocating for youth and youth service programs. The office’s main objective is to work with community partners to develop a coordinated community-wide Out of School Time (OST) system for youth and youth programming. This system will assist us to better coordinate programs and services for young people, improve the quality of these programs, engage parents and expand professional development for youth workers.
