Utilizing a combination of presentations, attendee interaction, and a staffed information area, representatives from Oswego County’s human service agencies will offer an insightful look into the wide range of youth services programs that exist in Oswego County and how to properly access them. According to planning committee member and executive director of the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau, Kathy Fenlon, the forum will feature presentations on youth services offered through agencies such as ARISE , ARC, Oswego Industries, Parents of Special Children, COCOA, Farnham, OCO Youth Services, Oswego and Fulton YMCAs, Catholic Charities of Oswego County, Oswego City-County Youth Bureau and Cornell Cooperative Extension.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for youth services providers to share information and educate community members about the services that are available for youth in Oswego County as well as inform them about careers and employment opportunities that exist in their organization,” said Fenlon.
