A "One-Stop" Shop

YouthSource started in 2003 as a “one-stop” service center for young people ages 16-24 who had dropped out of school. Our goal is to provide as many services as possible in one location as possible so that young people are able to complete their secondary credential (GED or high school diploma) and move on to college and/or employment.
