Youth Services Center

Bringing school, family and community together

 

The Youth Services Center works hand-in-hand with individuals, families, GRC staff and the community to assist students to achieve success in school. Assistance is provided by helping to meet the needs of students and their families. Direct services are provided, as well as linking families to agencies in the community.

ALL GRC students and their families are eligible for services.

The YSC is funded by a state grant and donations are always welcome. The YSC is monitored by a full-time director and governed by an advisory council consisting of a team of community leaders, parents, school staff and students. Volunteers are encouraged to call. The YSC strives to remove the obstacles that interfere with classroom success.
