Youth Bureau Service Components

Recreation Services: Our primary preventative component is designed to keep young people creatively active in programs of their choice.

Tutoring and Mentoring: Consistent with the initiation of higher educational standards by the New York State Education Department, the City of Utica Youth Bureau has developed solid collaborations with the Utica City School District. This program serves as an adjunct to conventional education programs and helps prepare our children for future educational success.

Youth Advisory Board: Over 21 members, from a variety of professional youth serving backgrounds work to advise the City of Utica Youth Bureau on a number of critical issues.
