Youth Bureau

It is the mission of the City of Peekskill Youth Bureau to promote and advocate for the empowerment and well being of all youth, their families and community by incorporating the Positive Youth Development methods in our direct and supportive programs and  services.

Thank you to Senator Murphy for presenting the Youth Bureau with a check in the amount of $50,000 to be used for capital improvements to the Youth Bureau building.


Our National Night Out was a success and the community had a wonderful time.

The Peekskill Youth Advisory Council met County Executive Robert Astorino and represented the Youth Bureau as well as the City of Peekskill at the Project WORTHY Youth Summit at the Westchester County Center in White Plains. This Summit dealt with youth coming up with strategies for their school and communities to fight back against the Heroin and Opioid epidemic afflicting Westchester.
