We are delighted to announce an exciting opportunity to become an integral part of Bainbridge Youth Services’ Board of Directors.

Bainbridge Youth Services offers FREE and CONFIDENTIAL professional mental health counseling and facilitates a thriving peer tutoring program. When youth step into BYS, we listen and we learn from them. We assure them that they are not alone in their struggles. We know they can navigate any obstacle – with a little help. 

We believe hope equals resilience. 

In the last several years, we’ve experienced a five-fold uptick in demand as levels of youth stress, anxiety and depression have increased. BYS strives to help youths meet the challenges they face by equipping them with life skills to learn from the past, live in the present, and hope for the future.  

Thanks to our generous community, all BYS offerings are free!

BYS gave me an outlet during a dark time in my life. It provided a space where I could talk through life’s struggles, ask questions I couldn’t normally ask, and rationalize the emotions that were weighing me down.

Because of BYS Tutoring, “I’m better at math, my test scores are improving, and I love being able to feel confident in my work!

Our Work

BYS creates connection through a wide variety of programs and services. We engage youths in ways that help foster resilience, empathy and independence. Through BYS, teens get support, give support, learn and lead – both on campus and within our greater community.


For Youth

You own your story. That’s why, when you work with BYS, it’s on your terms. We’ll help you be a strong self-advocate, stand up for others, or maybe even try something new and scary, together. We’re here to empower you to be your true self – today.

About Us

While our founding in 1962 may seem like ages ago, our mission remains timeless. How do we support our youth? How do we empower youths and increase hope amid constant change?
