The Tidewater Youth Services Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, established in 1991 to raise funds and find community support to assist a public agency, Tidewater Youth Services Commission, in its efforts to help at-risk and court involved youth become productive members of the community.

Mission: Our mission is to prepare at-risk and court involved youth for productive lives in their communities by improving academic skills, teaching appropriate social and life skills, and fostering involvement in positive activities. Our vision is a community where all youth reach their full potential without intervention from the juvenile justice system or the department of social services. To ensure that we accomplish our vision and mission, our actions and behaviors will always reflect the following core values and beliefs: 1) Every young person has value and the potential for a bright future. We believe those who do make mistakes have the capacity to change and become productive citizens. We are committed to making that happen. 2) We are accountable to our donors for the gifts they have entrusted to us and for their faith in our mission, conducting all affairs of the TYS Foundation with integrity, both in terms of financial oversight and transparency, and in the quality of the programming we support.

I'm sitting here making skillstreaming cards for our group homes for the ART groups (anger management) and I just finished cutting these out. All I can think about is how hard these skills in particular can be difficult for our youth.

Are there any social skills that were difficult for you to learn and do growing up? Or still, as an adult? Personally, I'm not good at negotiating!

Creating Opportunities. Instilling Hope.

Do you believe, as we do, that every young person has value and potential? For many, that value goes unnoticed. That potential is never reached. These youth, once full of promise, can become lost and troubled. They may end up on the streets, putting themselves in unsafe situations, or even committing delinquent acts. Their families may seek help โ€“ or they may become overwhelmed and uncertain about what to do. Sometimes their families give up. Tidewater Youth Services Foundation is here to help.

At Tidewater Youth Services Foundation, we help youth reach their full potential. We believe that even those who make mistakes have the capacity to change and become productive citizens. And โ€“ we are committed to making that change happen.

The TYS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, established in 1991 to raise funds and find community resources to support a public agency, Tidewater Youth Services Commission, in its efforts to help at-risk and court involved youth grow into productive members of the community. Our public partner, โ€œthe Commissionโ€, serves the cities of Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Franklin, as well as Isle of Wight and Southampton Counties. These seven localities formed the agency in 1977 in an effort to coordinate needed services for the juvenile population, thus avoiding a duplication of services in the region. In 34 years of operation, the Commission has developed a broad range of programs and services and is now the primary resource for juvenile justice services in the region.
