Child & Youth Council

Purpose
The Grant County Child and Youth Council is a local effort established in 1993 to form stronger connections between family, school and community so that all children and families can live productive lives. The Grant County Child and Youth Council serves children (ages 0 - 18 years) and their families who reside and/or attend the school districts of Ashby, Herman-Norcross or West Central Area located in Grant County.

In addition to being a Family Services Collaborative, the Grant County Child and Youth Council provides an umbrella for other child and youth serving work teams: an Early Childhood Initiative; a Child Abuse Prevention Council; a Local Coordinating Council; and a Community Transition Interagency Committee.
