Support For Seacoast NH Youth...Seacoast Youth Services
In December of 2001, Vic Maloney knew he had a mission to fulfill. He believed that all kids in Seacoast NH deserved the opportunity for a better life, to develop self-esteem, learn life and leadership skills, grow up healthy and drug free and become productive members of the community. He has shown his unflagging commitment to this goal by creating Seacoast Youth Services, because, as he unassumingly states, "It was the right thing to do...for the kids, their families and the Seacoast Community."
With the help of long time friend and chairman of the Board of Directors, Dawn Emerick, Vic put together the original mission of Seacoast Youth Services, a non-profit organization serving as a juvenile diversion program, providing substance abuse related services to Support Seacoast NH Youth and their families. Vic has served as Executive Director since its inception.
Fostering Support for Seacoast NH Youth, Seacoast Youth Services, in cooperation with schools, courts, law enforcement, mental health, social service and community agencies, employed a highly trained staff, alongside licensed professional counselors and social workers and began changing kids' lives. The services were available through school and community based programs and included assessment, prevention and education to Support Seacoast NH Youth and their families.
Today, Seacoast Youth Services has expanded its mission to Support Seacoast NH Youth with additional services and programs in the schools and community, including: a Parent Support Group that meets weekly; Project Alert, an in-school based program for middle schoolers utilizing the social influence model of drug use prevention; Student Assistance Program (SAP) in Winnacunnet High School with counseling by a licensed clinical social worker specializing in substance abuse, and Seabrook Adventure Zone (SAZ) for Seabrook Middle School designed to provide after school and summer programs to help kids improve their academic achievement. Seacoast Youth Services has been recognized by the NH Department of Education and received a 21st Century Learning Center Grant to help fund and Support Seacoast NH Youth.
Located at the former Dearborn Academy on Route 1 in Seabrook NH, Seacoast Youth Services has a 4000 SF facility complete with wireless computer lab and a full kitchen, designed for youths and their families to spend time together and build skills for a happier and brighter future.
I am proud to serve on the Board of Directors for this great organization and make a difference in the lives of Seacoast youth and their families.
