Youth Services

ITHACA YOUTH BUREAU


The Ithaca Youth Bureau (IYB), a public multi-service agency established 1948, provides a broad variety of recreation and youth development programs to promote the health, happiness, and well-being of all youth and families in the greater Ithaca area. We serve more than 7,500 youth annually, aged 0-20 years, through a wide array of programs including:


  • A tot stay-and-play program
  • Academic support
  • After school programs
  • Job and skill training and subsidized employment for youth
  • Lessons
  • Recreation mainstreaming services
  • Sports leagues
  • Summer camps
  • Theater workshops
  • Tournaments


In addition to recreation and after school initiatives that serve the general youth population, our youth development programs do strategic outreach to economically disadvantaged and under-served youth.

We help prepare youth to live successful lives as adults by providing a variety of recreation and youth development opportunities that will help youth develop to their full potential. We lend support to discouraged youth who are struggling to find their place in the world. We help our program participants understand that all people have a place in this world and together we can create a better tomorrow.
