As a non-profit agency, we appreciate any and all support from our community to continue to provide our services at no cost to our neighbors in need.
All donations are used to fund programs to address the needs of youth and their families, develop and implement educational/social activities that prevent delinquency and strengthen families, and coordinate special projects that promote positive youth development.
Please contact Tom Donaldson at (860) 496-0356 ext.7, TomTAYSB@snet.net, P.O. Box 204, Torrington, CT 06790 to donate.
Our annual toy and clothing drive starts at the end of September and continues until Christmas. The Torrington Youth Service Bureau collects names, ages, and wish lists from youth throughout the area who come from needy families or are in foster care. Anyone interested can call our office to obtain the name, or several names, of needy youth to donate a specific gift to. Last year, with the help of the community, we were able to distribute over 1,500 gifts to area youth.
Invest in the future. Mentor a youth!
You can help to guide a youth who might not have the proper support they need to make it in the world. Teach them daily living skills they don’t always learn in school and that they may not be taught at home, such as: applying to colleges and being successful students, how to manage their money, how to write a resume or apply for jobs, how to communicate effectively, be professional, learn a new hobby, make positive healthy lifestyle choices, and become established in the community so that they can learn to help and make a difference too!
We want mentoring to be a positive experience for everyone involved!
