They Youth Serving Agencies Network (YSAN) is a collaboration of Pierce County organizations. Together we work to increase coordination, collaboration, and capacity to collectively provide comprehensive support to court-connected youth in Pierce County. We focus on building relationships, leveraging resources, and learning more from each other.
Safe Streets began coordinating the Youth-Serving Agencies Network (YSAN) of Pierce County in 2018 through funding from the Washington State Partnership Council for Juvenile Justice’s Innovations in Juvenile Re-Entry grant program.
The YSAN is all about building relationships and trust across agencies. These relationships are the foundations for the coordination and collaboration of this systems change effort. Upon this foundation, we share resources, coordinate program strategies, collaborate to support court-connected youth, and bring a shared voice to community-wide juvenile justice transformation efforts. Our vision is to build a just and equitable community-centered justice system that is rooted in trauma-informed approaches, cultural responsiveness, and positive youth development.
The YSAN is maintained for the benefit of the youth and community of Pierce County and there is no fee to join. YSAN meetings are held every other month. To learn more about being part of this network of incredible organizations, please complete the interest form below:
