Board Members of the Association of New York State Youth Bureaus teamed up to represent over 1.3 million youth served statewide through county, city, town and village youth bureaus and their contracted organizations at the Association’s Annual Legislative Day.

They highlighted the value of Positive Youth Development afterschool, summer, and year-round programs that focus on issues such as academics, recreation, mentoring, mental health supports, juvenile justice prevention/intervention, leadership, civic engagement, and family empowerment.

Funding through the Youth Bureau system includes the Youth Development Program and Runaway Homeless Youth funding categories.

Board Members were able to meet with the following offices who listened as they shared concerns, expressed appreciation, and spoke out on behalf of children, youth, and families:

Governor Cuomo’s office and State Department of Budget, Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins office, Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi – Chair Children and Families, Senator Brisport Chair of Committee on Children And Families, Assemblywoman Rosenthal – Chair of Social Services, and staff from Senate Program & Counsel/Finance; Assembly Program & Counsel, and the Assembly Ways & Means.
