  • Mission:
  • California Youth Services is a multi-service nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a variety of programs and services to include education, prevention, intervention, assessment, and counseling that assist and support adolescents, individuals, couples, and families to address life's challenges specializing in issues related to substance abuse, delinquent behavior, mental health struggles, and families in crisis.

  • Overview:
  • CYS provides programs to help youth navigate the teen years when struggles and challenges arise. We do this by incorporating research based programs that integrate and focus on education, mental health, substance abuse prevention, and overall well-being of the at risk youth and their family. The programs that we run to help youth and their families are:
    JADE (Juvenile Alcohol & Drug Education)
    DECISIONS (Legal awareness program)
    Pathways Community Counseling Program
    School Programs (such as Alternative to Suspension programs and Random Student Drug Testing)
    Learn 2 Read OC (for Students with dyslexia or struggling readers)
    Collegiate Drug & Alcohol Program (C-DAP, for college youth)

  • History:
  • While CYS has only existed as its own nonprofit entity since 2011, our history goes back to 2002 when current Executive Director Margie Diaz worked with County divisions, law enforcement, mental health professionals, schools, and parents to offer the Juvenile Alcohol & Drug Education (JADE) Program. Over the next several years, CYS grew into a fiscally sponsored project of the Boys & Girls Club of Tustin, adding juvenile delinquency prevention and intervention, as well as counseling services for at-risk youth. CYS also began partnering with school districts to offer similar programs at schools for students.
    Since 2010, CYS served more than 5,000 youth and more than 3,800 parents and community members through prevention and intervention education for youth and parents, school-based programs, its Pathways Community Counseling Center, and community outreach.
    Today, CYS is a multi-service nonprofit impacting more than 5,000 individuals each year through offices in Laguna Hills and Tustin and several program sites across OC.
