Join Waterbury Youth Services in Celebrating Waterbury's Youth during our
36-HOUR ONLINE GIVE LOCAL CAMPAIGN
APRIL 25th & APRIL 26th
Since its inception, our purpose has always been to help disconnected/disengaged youth learn the skills they need to be more successful at home, school, in the workplace, and the community via 16 programs and at no cost to our youth.
HEAR THE VOICES OF OUR YOUTH
When we talk about our strengths, we're not just talking about the programs themselves. We're talking about the current youth who are finding their voices and discovering their passions, the former youth who now work for WYS or have gone on to college and a career, the staff who make these programs possible, and the community members who have chosen to give back by volunteering their time, expertise, and money.
As one current program manager has said, “The decision to work for WYS was an easy one. After attending WYS's Summer Youth Employment Program and afterschool programs, I knew firsthand the impact that WYS has on young people's lives. I am excited that I can pay it forward by helping young people discover and achieve their goals.".
Hosted by CT Community Foundation, Give Local is a 36 hour fundraising event that will take place April 25th-26th, 2023 to benefit the vital work of hundreds of non-profit organizations in Greater Waterbury and Litchfield Hills. #GIVELOCAL
