Youth Service Center

  • The Jessie Clark Youth Service Center is a non-profit, grant-funded agency that looks to reduce non-academic barriers to student success. 

    The YSC runs school-wide, grade level, and classroom programs for JCMS students.  In one way or another, the YSC works with every student at Jessie Clark.

    In addition to school programs, the YSC also conducts after-school programs and activities, which promote both academic and social development.

    One of the more important aspects of the YSC are the referrals to community and school support programs. The YSC does referrals for both students and families for numerous reasons.

    There are over 40 Family Resource and Youth Service Centers in Fayette County.
