The mission of the Madison County Youth Bureau is to promote and encourage the development of a comprehensive system of services to meet the needs of Madison County’s young people.
The Madison County Youth Bureau administers New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) funds within Madison County. The Youth Bureau assists with the coordination and development of programs and services for children and youth under the age of 21.
The Youth Bureau is led by a Board comprised of youth and adults representing Madison County to allow local decision making and design.
The Teen Assessment Project (TAP) Survey is administered to youth in grades seven through twelve every four years. This local needs assessment guides the Resource Allocation Process for both county and state funds. The intent of these funds is to seek to provide services for all youth.
