 Youth Commission
The Youth Commission is a nine member volunteer board, appointed by the Board of Selectmen to advocate for the needs of the youth and families of Westborough. The Youth Commission created Westborough Youth and Family Services (WYFS), in 1984. Since that time, WYFS has provided mental health and substance abuse counseling, prevention and education programs, information about mental health and substance abuse issues, and referrals to appropriate service providers for the residents of Westborough. WYFS takes an active role in the coordination of mental health and social services for the town. The Department is staffed by a full-time Director, two part-time Counselors, a part-time Administrative Assistant, and a summer Youth Activities Coordinator. The Youth Commission meets monthly with the WYFS Director to guide the direction of the Department. Meetings are usually the second Monday of each month, September through June, at 7:30 p.m. in the Youth and Family Services office, on the second floor of the Forbes Municipal Building.
Commission members commit to attending monthly meetings for about 1 to 1.5 hours, to discuss direction for the department. In addition, Members attended town meeting, and usually one Advisory Finance Committee meeting and one Selectman’s meeting during the budget season, in the spring or occasionally, as other meetings or projects arise.
Further information may be obtained by calling the Director, John Badenhausen at 508-366-3090, or emailing at jbadenhausen@town.westborough.ma.us.
