businesses, community leaders and concerned citizens established to meet the
needs of youth and families in Guernsey County, and implement core values to be
passed on to future.
Our goal is to promote healthy and productive youth in the Guernsey County area

development of safe and stable families.
This is achieved by a dedicated group of volunteers from various public and
private agencies, as well as concerned adults and youth in our county.
The Guernsey County Youth Commission will work to enhance the lives of
youths and families, while combating juvenile delinquency and community
deterioration, by building on community assets and core vales.
The Commission will make a concentrated effort, through continuous evaluation,
to develop in collaboration with the private sector, playful and realistic
programming for area youth.

legacy for the youth of Guernsey County.

Guernsey County Youth Commission SMARTT Program
The SMARTT Program (Supplying Mentoring of At-Risk Teens to Tots) of the GCYC is
a brand new program formed and modeled after the former Big Brothers Big Sisters
agency in Guernsey County.
The program focuses on group and peer mentoring for
at-risk youth throughout Guernsey County. Programming is now being researched
and drafted with a hopeful roll-out date of January 2005.
The new SMARTT Program will allow for greater flexibility in what services and
programs can be offered to the youth of the county, with the ability to mold the
program on the suggestions of the youth and volunteers that are involved.
If you have any interest in volunteering or having your child involved with the
SMARTT Program, please call 439-5555 Ext 222, Monday-Friday 8:00am-4:30pm.
If you would like to help, please feel free join the Youth Commission!
No experience required! Meetings are held the
first Wednesday of every month at 9am at the Guernsey County Dept. of Job &
Family Services. Hope to see you there!
