OSWEGO, NY – Representatives from a number of Oswego County’s human services agencies will host an Oswego County Youth Program Forum on Nov. 18 at SUNY Oswego Phoenix Extension Site.
Sign-in begins at 8:30 a.m. with the program starting promptly at 9 a.m.
Open to anyone interested in learning about the many services and programs that are available to youth in Oswego County, the Youth Program 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 Executive Director of the United Way of Greater Oswego County, Melanie Trexler.
Director of the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau, Kathy Fenlon, chair of the event’s planning committee, explained that the format of the forum would allow for agency representatives to present a synopsis of their particular program followed by a short question and answer period.
The presentations 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.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for youth services providers to come together and show the community what they have to offer the youth of Oswego County as well as inform them about careers and employment opportunities that exist in their organization,” added Ms. Fenlon.
