Youth Board

Mission Statement

The Amherst Youth Board is an organization offering varied services in support of children, youth and families living in the Town of Amherst. Chartered by the Amherst Town Board and New York State Executive Law, the agency is governed by a policy-making board of 23 citizen volunteers, comprising both adults and youth.

Members are appointed by the Amherst Town Board for three-year terms and participate in decisions affecting programming, policies, funding and public relations for youth programs and services.

The Youth Board also relies on the efforts and contributions of citizen volunteers in its programs. Many different volunteer opportunities are available, and may be tailored to individual needs.
