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.
