Tidewater Youth Services

Creating Opportunities. Instilling Hope.

The Santa Claus Shuffle is the signature fundraiser for Tidewater Youth Services Foundation.  Our Foundation supports a public agency, Tidewater Youth Services Commission, in its efforts to help at-risk and court-involved youth gain the tools needed to become productive adults.  Join our cause - give kids who may have made mistakes a second chance - and make your community a better place for all! 

Did you know that 85% of all juveniles involved in the juvenile court system are functionally illiterate? Reseach shows that by improving reading skills, juveniles are less likely to return to the system. As you can imagine, at TYSFoundation, we take reading and academics very seriously! Our group home residents participate in a reading program, bookclubs, creative writing workshops, and this past summer we introduced a math program.  

At TYSFoundation, we invest in the futures of our youth by supporting ACADEMICS & LITERACY, LIFE SKILLS, & BUILDING SELF-RELIANCE.

Please join us in our quest to give our at-risk youth the skills they need to become productive members of the community!
