Passion Meets Purpose: WYS Advocates at YSB Day!


On April 26th, 2023, Waterbury Youth Services (WYS) team members Dominiqua, Rasheeda, and Olivia attended the Connecticut Youth Services Association (CYSA) YSB Day at the Capitol in Hartford, CT. They met with legislators to emphasize the crucial role that Youth Service Bureaus (YSBs) play in our communities.

Thanks to CYSA's leadership and support, WYS is proud to be designated by the State of Connecticut as the Youth Service Bureau serving the City of Waterbury. Together, we work tirelessly to promote the well-being of the state's children, youth, and families.

Our dedicated team advocated for the support and funding of YSBs, highlighting their importance in providing essential services and resources to young people. Our team members' passion for their work left a lasting impact on legislators and fellow YSB advocates.

The efforts of our WYS team at YSB Day have the potential to positively influence countless families across the state. Our collective dedication to the cause is truly commendable and inspires us all to strive for a better future for Connecticut's children, youth, and families.
