Youth Services (YS)

Youth Services

Youth Services (YS) provides a broad range of coordinated services for youth who are in foster care or homeless or experiencing barriers and need support to finish school, find a job or pursue a career path. Our programs are designed to prepare students to become self-confident, self-sufficient and independent adults. YS is a grant-funded department within the Contra Costa County Office of Education, Student Programs, and receives funding from the California Department of Education, the Contra Costa County Workforce Investment Board, Contra Costa County Employment and Human Services, the Department of Rehabilitation, as well as other funding sources.                                                                          

Current programs include:                                                                               YS Brochure

In addition to directly supporting youth through our programs, our department also provides technical assistance and professional development to school district staff and administrators in the areas of foster youth services and homeless education.

We work in partnership with school districts, social services, community colleges, probation, juvenile court, and community organizations to support youth in our schools and community so that they can successfully access and navigate education, employment, and long term economic opportunity.
