BYS & B.I. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ANNOUNCE WORK READY BAINBRIDGE:
The Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce and Bainbridge Youth Services are partnering to create a new, eight-week summer employment and workforce certification program connecting local youth employees (ages 16-24) with employers and the local business/nonprofit community. Click Here to learn more.
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!
