Wayland Youth and Family Services

Wayland Youth & Family Services is a local organization that works in close collaboration with schools and other community organizations in Wayland. The group supports the healthy development of young Wayland residents and families by providing a variety of programs: health promotion, counseling, education, and outreach services.

Wayland Cares 

WaylandCares is a division of Wayland Youth & Family Services and includes members from the Wayland Public School Administration (Principals), SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) staff, Wellness Curriculum staff, Wayland Police, Youth Leadership groups, Violence Prevention Task Force members and any interested Wayland residents. This is a volunteer opportunity with no commitment and is a driving force behind many of the programs developed for the schools, mostly MS and HS level.

WaylandCares meets in person at Wayland High School, at 9:00 AM, on the third Tuesday of the month. These meetings are in person and they are always looking for Wayland parents and residents to attend.
