What is now the City of Highland Park’s Division of Youth Services was created by the City in 1973, primarily through the efforts of a few young people and community-minded adults. This youth organization originally operated under the name Highland Park Youth Committee.

In 1986, the organization’s name was changed to Youth Services to better reflect the diversity of services being offered. Thanks to the continued support of the City Council, the community and Highland Park youth, these programs continue to flourish.

Manager of Youth and Senior Services Laura Frey
