Community Events Benefiting YSB

All YSB fundraising events promote a friendly atmosphere and camaraderie between new and old friends with the ambition of empowering children. These events raise funds needed to maintain the array of programs and services of the YSB. The YSB is a non-profit human service agency that has been serving children, youth, and families of Centre County and surrounding counties since 1968.

YSB Special Events are held rain or shine.  Because these are charitable events, no refunds will be made if it becomes impossible to complete the event due to adverse weather or circumstances beyond the event committee’s control.

The office registration and financial information of the Centre County Youth Service Bureau may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll-free, within Pennsylvania, 1-800-732-0999.  Registration does not imply endorsement.
