About the YSB

What is the Canton Youth Services Bureau?

The Canton Community of Concern/Substance Abuse Council is now a subcommittee of the Canton Youth Services bureau.  This is a town committee which will continue to provide programs to our students and the community, dealing with substance abuse and mental health issues.

This organization remains a partnership between parents, students, schools, and the community, working together to keep our children safe and drug free.

Our goal is to create awareness in the community concerning substance abuse and to work together collaboratively.  We continue to ask the entire Canton community to help us achieve this goal in the hope that we will be sending a clear message to our young people that we are all in this together.

The Youth Services Bureau members are comprised of:

  • Community
  • School Administrators
  • Students

  • Police Officers
  • Clergy
