What is the Youth Services Center? Youth Services Centers (YSCs) were created as part of the Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA) and are located in several middle and high schools to support students in overcoming barriers. The YSC’s mission is to enhance students’ abilities to succeed in school by developing and sustaining partnerships that promote learning, academic achievement, well-being, graduation, and transition into adult life.
Who operates the center? The YSC Coordinator oversees center activities. The center is governed by an Advisory Council that consists of parents, school staff, community representatives and students. The council meets every other month during the school year.
