State of the Oneida County Youth Council addressed
UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente was the keynote speaker for the State of the Council address concerning the Oneida County Youth Services Council. It's basically a report card for the Oneida County Youth Coalition, that was created back in 2011 to streamline services to the county's youngsters. The three main focuses are school readiness, mental health, and public health and wellness issues, but it's growing. " It's expanded into all aspects of youth services," Picente said. Now the goal is to reach into schools and into the community to collaborate with different agencies in those areas, Picente said. Looking ahead, he says the streamline approach works to pool resources and bring all of the organizations under one umbrella.
