Government of New Brunswick

Overview

YSP is a collaborative network that facilitates effective and efficient delivery of programs and services for youth at the local and provincial level. This department facilitates the formation of a committee of community youth stakeholders who form cooperative partnerships designed to meet the developmental needs of local youth.

Eligibility

Federal and provincial government departments, community and youth serving agencies, and private sector representatives who provide programs and services to youth may become involved with their local committee.

Description

There are 10 YSP committees provincially. They are an inclusive network of federal and provincial departments, community and youth serving agencies, and private sector representatives who seek to provide a continuum of programs and services to local youth. The partnership seeks to identify needs, available resources, and innovative approaches to meeting the gaps in service delivery. Member organizations often partner to jointly fund youth initiatives using their existing funds as there are no funds attached to this program.
