Jefferson County Youth BureauVirginia Harrington, Director 175 Arsenal Street Watertown, New York 13601 315 785 – 3382 (phone) 315 785 – 3223 (fax) Notice 2012 Recreation Scholarships Available The Jefferson County Youth Bureau is pleased to announce the availability of recreation scholarships. These scholarships are for children and youth who do not have the opportunity to participate in recreational, social, or cultural events, and who are at risk for not developing to their fullest potential. The funding for the scholarships is provided by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services and through an Adopting Healthy Habits grant from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County. Scholarships are available for recreational, cultural, educational, or social activities that have been demonstrated to be of value to increasing abilities, talents or positive relationships. Examples are: registration fees for sports leagues, fees for participation in karate or outdoor adventure programs, computer camps, dance, art or music les- sons. The maximum amount per scholarship for these “skill building” activities is $400, and may include equip- ment or clothing necessary to participate in the activity. Limited scholarships are also available for general camp experiences. Adopting Healthy Habits scholarships for camp cover expenses up to $400. Youth Bureau scholarships for camp cover expenses up to $200. Because of a change in NYS OCFS regulations, it is now permissible for parents to pay a portion of the cost. We are no longer able to fund YMCA memberships. Young people or their parents may contact the YMCA di- rectly to discuss possible financial assistance. To nominate a young person for a scholarship, please complete the enclosed application form and return it to the Jefferson County Youth Bureau by mail (175 Arsenal St., Watertown, N.Y. 13601, fax (785 – 3223) or e-mail ( You may duplicate the application for additional nominations. The agency or person making the nomination will be notified of the decision. It will be the responsibility of that person or agency to help the child and family with any necessary arrangements, if necessary (for example: regis- tration, transportation). Confidentiality of applications will be honored. Please contact the Youth Bureau (785 – 3382) if you have any questions or need additional information. FRSA FLASH Page 3
