Youth Bureau Overview
The Columbia County Youth Bureau is responsible for the administration of the Youth Development Program (YDP) funding for various youth programs that promote positive youth development throughout Columbia County. These funds originate from the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. The Columbia County Youth Bureau works to assist Columbia County agencies that provide a wide variety of services, supports and opportunities for youth up until the age of 21 throughout our community. Municipalities and not-for-profit organizations operating a youth program (501(c)3 certification ) that focus on youth development, are welcome to apply.
The Executive Director of Youth is guided by the Columbia County Youth Advisory Board which is made up of volunteer representatives from each of the municipalities in Columbia County. They meet quarterly to review activities and programs that the agencies offer and assist the Executive Director in the monitoring of funded agencies and programs.
