Newburyport Youth Services (known as NYS) provides a combination of recreation and social services to children and families in Newburyport. Please explore our pages for programs, activities and opportunities.

Our Mission

The mission of Newburyport Youth Services is to create quality programming and events for our city’s youth in safe and supportive environments that encourage growth, self exploration and empowerment. The department also acts as an advocate for the youth, so that their ideas, concerns and needs are heard and addressed by the community of Newburyport.



We are excited to introduce two new programs at NYS! Starting this January we are offering The Yellow Elephant Club (a support group for teens) on Tuesdays. Please download information here.

NYS is also excited to announce the start of Nebwuryport Community Mentors. We are currently recruiting adult mentors! Apply to change a life today!
