Youth and Teen Support Resources
Growing up isn't easy. The paths our kids and teens are on is filled with raging hormones, uncertainty and can be a confusing time for many youth. Too often there is no place they can gather safely, have someone just listen to them without judgement and offer support and guidance along with referral to resources if needed. Below you will find listed a number of great organizations that help support kids. Click on a logo below to be taken to your website of choice for more information.
The Pennsylvania Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is comprised of current and former substitute care youth ages 16-21. Youth leaders on the YAB educate, advocate, and form partnerships to create positive change in the substitute care system. The YAB is funded by the PA Department of Human Services, Office of Children, Youth and Families and is supported by the University of Pittsburgh, PA Child Welfare Resource Center.
