About Us

The Youth Service Center has two locations- Hebron Middle School, Room 1 and North Bullitt High School, Room 6.  The staff consists of a YSC Coordinator and YSC Assistant.  Hours of operation are Monday-Friday from 8-4pm.  Due to the Youth Service Center's time commitments to Hebron Middle, North Bullitt High, and the community, it is advised to call for an appointment in order to assure someone can assist you when coming to the center.

 

Amy D. Risley, LCSW- Youth Service Center Coordinator

My name is Amy Risley. I was born in Paducah, Kentucky and also lived in several places- Brandon, Mississippi; Shreveport, Louisiana; Brookfield, Wisconsin; Springfield, Illinois, and Murray, Kentucky.  I have resided in Kentucky since attending and graduating from Murray State University with a Bachelors in Science for Social Work and a minor in Youth Agency Administration.  I recieved my Masters in Social Work from Spalding University, and I am also licensed in the state of Kentucky as a LCSW (therapist).  In the past I have specifically worked with the foster care system, emergency assistance non-profit agency, and as a therapist with a community mental health agency. I absolutely enjoy working with adolescents-especially pre-teen and teenagers.  Our youth have so much potential despite the adversity that many face, and I hope the Youth Service Center can help to inspire and support them in the paths they choose.

Mary Lee Mason, Youth Service Center Assistant

I am Mary Lee Mason. I was born and raised in Bullitt County.  I graduated from Shepherdsville High School in 1965 and attended Georgetown College 1965-1966.  My husband and I moved out to the northern end of the county in 1970.  Our children attended elementary, middle and graduated from North Bullitt High School.  I have worked in the school system for many years as an instructional aide; clerical worker, bookkeeper, and now as an assistant in the Youth Service Center, which I dearly love.  I introduce myself to the students when they come up as "Grandma Mason."  It is easier for them to relate to me in that capacity, even though if it's just a smile or a listening ear.  I have great passion for this program.  The path of life is rough for all of us and if we meet someone along the way and look the other way, then what good has our walk been.
