What is the Canton Youth Services Bureau?
The Canton Community of Concern/Substance Abuse Council is now a subcommittee of the Canton Youth Services Bureau.
The Canton Youth Services Bureau is a Town Committee which will continue to provide programs to our students and the community, dealing with Substance Abuse and Mental Health issues.
This organization remains a partnership between parents, students, schools, and the community, working together to keep our children safe and drug free.
