Learn about youth services at Oswego County Youth Program Forum

Representatives from a number of Oswego County’s human services agencies will host an Oswego County Youth Program Forum Friday, Nov. 15 at the SUNY Oswego Phoenix Extension Site.

Sign-in begins at 8:30 a.m. with the program starting promptly at 9:00 a.m.

The program is open to anyone interested in learning about the many services and programs that are available to youth in Oswego County.

The forum will provide youth service providers with an opportunity to share information on their programs while learning about other youth programs that exist in Oswego County.

“The Youth Forum is an excellent example of our human services agencies working together to help achieve a common good … helping our youth and their families.

“This kind of collaboration truly demonstrates the Live United concept that we are all connected,” said Melanie Trezler, executive director of the United Way of Greater Oswego County.

Interim Director of the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau, Brian Chetney, co-chairperson of the event’s planning committee, said the format of the forum would allow for participants to select from a series of workshops where agency representatives will present a synopsis of their program.

The different workshops will touch on a number of the youth services that are available. Additionally, there will be an information area where attendees may learn more about many of the other youth services offered in Oswego County.

“The Oswego County Youth Program Forum is an excellent opportunity for youth agencies to come together and discuss the different services they offer to youth and families in Oswego County. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to network and ask questions,” added Chetney.
