Youth ServicesMeeting the needs of Milwaukee County’s youth
SDC’s Youth Services offers programs for low-income and at-risk youth that live in Milwaukee County. Our experienced staff guide and counsel youth to aid in their development and provide them with the foundation and skills necessary to achieve their goals.
By participating in the services offered, youth are able to discuss topics and social encounters that they experience day-to-day helping them to acquire conflict resolution and leadership skills.
