County Youth Programs


General Overview

County Youth Programs is one of the four divisions in the Office of Family and Community Services.  We plan, develop, and provide service for children and youth. 

The Dropout Initiative has a multi-component program called Doors To Success which impacts the youth population between the ages of 16-23 in areas where the rate of high school dropout is high.


Our mission is to help children and youth become healthy productive adults by supporting educational achievement, preparation for employment and the development of personal competencies.
