GYS operates a recreational drop-in center for high school students in New Trier Township. We’re located adjacent to ball fields and a block west of downtown Glencoe. GYS attempts to offer anything (within reason 🙂 ) a teen may want – high speed computers, high definition cable television, tasty snacks, comfy couches, stacks of board games and a wide array of activities.


Ongoing Opportunities:

Board Members:
GYS is a small teen drop in center located in Glencoe. Currently we are looking for new board members who are interested in helping the teens of Glencoe and New Trier Township be helpful and productive citizens. Board members help to plan fundraisers and special events, oversee the staff and direction of GYS and work to increase awarness of GYS in the community. www.glencoeyouthservices.org

Youth Worker:
GYS is looking for an energetic individual to volunteer at a youth worker. Youth Workers will be responsible for providing supervision of youth at the youth center as well as on outings.

Computer Assistance:
We need someone to help untangle (literall and figuratively) our computer system. We also need help with our social media and web sites.

Disability Assistants:
We run a great social program for young adults with disabilities and are always open to having people come in, hang out, and help out with activities. We promise a good time. Tuesday evenings, 6:30 to 9:30.
