Oneida County Children Care
Oneida County Children Care, an Oneida County Youth Bureau initiative of civic engagement implemented in 2009 successfully completed its first year. The initiative is collaboration between the Youth Bureau and 11 agencies the Youth Bureau funds that provide programming for youth. The intent of the project is to introduce our children to the invaluable lessons of community service through volunteerism.
The goal of the Oneida County Children Care initiative is to take the life lessons these agencies teach and apply them in their communities. “We want our children to be good neighbors in their communities, make their communities a better place to live and aid in providing more worthwhile services while maximizing limited resources,” Picente continued.
