Advocating for La Plata Youth

La Plata Youth Services provides resources and individualized support for youth in Bayfield, Durango, and Ignacio who struggle with problems in court, at school, or at home with the goal of keeping youth out of the juvenile justice system. Each family receives specialized attention with the goal of each youth engaging positively in their community.

Services include screening, advocacy, case management, mentorship, restorative justice, substance abuse education, summer programs, and useful public service opportunities at a variety of institutions. La Plata Youth Services has a partnership with Durango 9-R School District for expelled and at-risk students and also serves as the backbone agency for the La Plata County Collaborative Management Program.

How to Get Involved

A variety of internships are available along with volunteer positions for those ready to make a difference. Within a small organization, volunteers will have the chance to positively shape the lives of youth in the community. Potential volunteers can contact the La Plata Youth Services offices at (970) 385-4440 or email info@lpys.org. Employment opportunities are also available.
