Youth Services Center

Last Updated: 9/14/2020 8:08 PM

 The FRYSC mission is to enhance students’ abilities to succeed in school by developing partnerships that promote:

  • Early learning and successful transition into school;

  • Academic achievement and well-being; and

  • Graduation and transition into adult life. 

The Youth Services Center is here to assist with the needs of ALL of our students and their families.

The Youth Services Center is an important component to the infrastructure of a successful and productive school.

We provide stable, positive and welcoming environments that support families, school staff and the community. We assist students in achieving educational excellence by bridging the gap between home, school, and the community. We look forward to meeting you.

Goal: To remove non-academic barriers to learning as a means to enhance student academic success. To remove these barriers, the YSC will link students and families with school and community resources.

Services provided are based on the following Core Components:

Health and Social Services: To improve the overall health and well-being of students by addressing the following health components: physical education, health services, nutrition, counseling/psychological services, social services, health promotion for staff, and family/community involvement.

Career Exploration and Development: To promote college and/or career readiness for all students by preparing them for future employment and successful transition into adult life.

Substance Abuse Education and Counseling: To assist in the prevention of the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD), and improve decision making skills by educating students and families; and the reduction of ATOD use through coordination of counseling services and education.

Family Crisis and Mental Health Counseling: To increase self-management and coping strategies by assisting students and families with mental health needs and/or other crises through the identification and coordination of services.
