We are excited and proud to be part of the Juvenile Advisory Council’s, Youth Social Service Advisory Committee.  The purpose of the committee, is to create a collaborative environment in which the leaders of these organizations can work together to identify what their needs are, and to create solutions.

The purpose of the committee, she said, is to create a collaborative environment in which the leaders of these organizations can work together to identify what their needs are, and to create solutions.  One of the largest aspects of the committee will involve finding volunteers to help lighten the load currently placed on individual case workers, as well as provide services that may not be currently available.

In addition to the volunteer recruitment program, the committee will include the Social Service and Community Education Program.This program will include training sessions for officials at the various organizations, as well as the community at large, to educate individuals about services offered within each county organization.  It will also allow the leaders of county organizations to come together to “advocate, champion and support youth-centered policies at local, state and national levels.”
