The Allegany County Youth Bureau functions to assist in the development and funding of programs which encourage positive youth development. These programs encourage all youth to become involved, assist them in developing a sense of responsibility, and motivate them to make a positive contribution to their community. Throughout Allegany County, cultural and recreational opportunities are made accessible to young people so that they may build character and continue to mature physically, intellectually, and emotionally.

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Allegany County Youth Bureau and Board to work collaboratively with all youth service providers to provide our families and youth with opportunities to participate in a variety of educational and recreational programs which will enhance and promote a wide range of assets necessary for healthy development. We strive to provide innovative programs that will encourage empowerment, constructive use of time, positive values, positive identity, and social competencies so all our young people will grow up to be healthy, caring responsible adults.
