New Brunswick’s Youth Services System provides comprehensive after school programming for New Brunswick residents ages 6-15. This program operates at seven school within New Brunswick providing the opportunity for children from all parts of New Brunswick to participate at a site close to their home.
Activities provided in through the Youth Services System include homework assistance, peer counseling, leadership training, athletic programming, and workshops in music, drama, and photography.
Parents and other family members are encouraged to take part in much of the programming. The Youth Services System strives to bring together business leaders, social service agencies, community groups, and educators in an effort to offer programming which will be most beneficial to participants.
The Youth Services System has also formed partnerships with several departments at Rutgers University to provide educational, training, and internship opportunities for Rutgers students as well as leadership, staffing, and financing for YSS participants.
