Say YES to NYS! is a call to action for all Newburyport Youth Services (NYS) supporters to show backing for NYS’ future in asking the City to secure funds for a permanent location for NYS that meets its current and future needs.
In October 2018 the City of Newburyport announced that Mayor Holaday and other city officials are considering the Emergency Management Agency property on Low Street as the potential permanent location for NYS. This location is ideal, as it is centrally located and sits in very close proximity to the schools.
Although the existing building on this property requires significant renovations, Youth Services and the City have a positive outlook about its potential to meet NYS’ immediate and future requirements. A building renovation or rebuild also provides opportunity for NYS and youth to design the space to best meet their needs.
There are a handful of ways we ask you to Say YES! to NYS:
* Get involved. We have multiple volunteer and support opportunities for adults and youth. Let us know a bit about you: Yes, I’d like to be involved with Friends of NYS!
* Post and rally support on social media! Don’t forget to post to Friends of NYS Facebook page and use the hashtag #SayYEStoNYS
* Share testimonials of the benefits your children and family have received from the amazing programs, services, and supports that NYS has offered over the years; contact us if you would like to do this formally
