Department of Youth Services Lynn

The Department of Youth Services (DYS) is Massachusetts’ juvenile justice agency. Their mission is “to protect the public and prevent crime by promoting positive change in the lives of youth committed to our custody.” They partner with many government and community organizations as well as with families to ensure their mission’s success. All youth interventions are intended to build knowledge, develop skills, and improve behavior. The majority of youth under the care of DYS have been adjudicated delinquent. Forty-five percent of those served are identified as having special education needs and 44% have been charged with having committed a violent offence.
The DYS Lynn District office sees more than 35 youth every year. The dedicated staff runs programs to uphold the DYS mission including managing individuals’ case work, running group counseling, providing food, and housing a successful General Education Development (GED) classroom. Artwork hangs in the GED classroom, entrance area, hallway, kitchen, and in the caseworkers and therapists’ offices.
