Clarkston Area Youth Assistance was established in 1961 for the purpose of preventing juvenile delinquency and
neglect in the Clarkston, Independence Township and Springfield Township communities. With the help of local
citizens, Youth Assitance tries to identify the needs of the community and implement programs that help both
children and families. Youth Assistance volunteers provide support in various projects and endeavors.
Our mission is To Strengthen Youth and Families and to reduce the incidence of
delinquency, abuse and neglect through volunteer involvement.
