Youth & Family Services
Mission
We seek to promote the social and emotional health of our youth, create opportunities for then to maximize their potential and become balanced and functioning citizens in their community and to educate and engage the community on important issues impacting youth and families with children.

Serving Norwich families and youth for 36 years
     Mandated by Connecticut General Statute section 10-19m, a Youth Service Bureau (YSB) is an agency operated by one or more municipalities that is designed for planning, evaluation, coordination and implementation of a network of resources and opportunities for children, youth and their families. A guiding principle for Norwich Youth and Family Services is to mobilize our community to encourage citizens, institutions, service organizations and decision makers to plan programs and strategies that foster positive youth development activities and maximize the potential of Norwich youth to become balanced functining citizens in their community. 
     There are currently 104 Youth Service Bureaus across Connecticut serving 145 towns. YSB's are partnerships between State and local government and local towns must match every dollar the State provides. The Connecticut Youth Service Association is partnering with the State Department of Education and The Charter Oak Group, LLC to develop a Results Based Accountability (RBA) Framework for Youth Service Bureaus statewide.  Norwich Youth and Family Services uses evidence based curriculum and time tested interventions to achieve the best results possible for Norwich Youth.
