Join us at Waterbury Youth Services in uplifting the future leaders of our community during our

The heart of our mission at Waterbury Youth Services is a simple, powerful conviction: Every Act of Support Echoes Forward, amplifying the voices of tomorrow, empowering dreams, and transforming futures.

This vision drives us to reach out to disconnected and disengaged youth, offering them not just hope, but tangible pathways to success in their personal and professional lives.

Through a comprehensive suite of 16 programs, we address the pressing needs of youth and their families, fostering skills for success at home, in school, in the workplace, and within the wider community. Our efforts go beyond immediate needs, aiming to instill a sense of belonging, confidence, and ambition in the young people we serve.

The stories of transformation are as diverse as the individuals we support. From young participants who discover a newfound passion and direction, to those who, having benefited from our services, return to contribute their skills and experiences, the narrative is one of continuous, forward-moving impact. These stories underscore the vital role of community support, illustrating how each donation, each hour of volunteered time, contributes to a larger, life-changing force.

We invite you to join this transformative journey, to be a part of the vibrant chorus of voices advocating for a brighter, more hopeful tomorrow. Your support is not just an investment in the youth of today but a beacon lighting the way for generations to come.

Hosted by CT Community Foundation, Give Local is a 36 hour fundraising event that will take place April 24th-25th, 2024 to benefit the vital work of hundreds of non-profit organizations in Greater Waterbury and Litchfield Hills.

Lift a Voice, Power a Dream, Brighten a Future!
