The Friends of the Glen Cove Youth Board is a not-for-profit organization that was formed for the sole purpose of supporting the many educational, nutritional, and recreational programs offered by the Glen Cove Youth Bureau. Since 1981, this exceptional agency has been providing assistance to the youth of our City and their families.
Through the Youth Bureau, the Friends assist in providing back to school supplies to students who couldn’t otherwise afford these essentials. In addition, food baskets and Thanksgiving dinners are distributed to needy families, as well as scholarships to graduating High School students who have demonstrated outstanding community service. Our funding also provides summer employment and training, outreach and educational support and recreational activities throughout the year for students throughout our school district, many of which are extended with no cost to the families.
