Youth Services Teams (YST)

About YST

yst_logoYouth Services Teams are multidisciplinary teams that provide integrated services to students and their families in Linn County, Oregon. These teams consist of staff from schools, social service agencies, law enforcement agencies, and other related community service providers. Their purpose is to identify needs of families who work voluntarily with the this team of professionals to identify and arrange services through coordinated planning.

Currently, there are five regional teams serving Northern Linn, Albany, Lebanon, Sweet Home and Southern Linn regions. Every public school in Linn County is served by its regional team which meets regularly to coordinate efforts for children and youth who have been referred for services. The team of agency representatives and the student’s parents, when present, share current information and develop a plan to meet the needs of the student and family.

When sharing information, the teams adhere to confidentiality guidelines.

General Services

Although services may vary by region, there are many basic services offered and/or coordinated by your Youth Services Teams. The Teams work voluntarily with families to coordinate a list of services or interventions based on the student or family’s needs and requests. We work collaboratively with the family as an important part of our team, to develop creative solutions and reduce or minimize barriers to accessing services. Team members also work individually with families on an outreach basis to assist and follow up on services and progress.

  • Referrals to mental health counseling for your child(ren)
  • Activities for youth and/or families
  • Identify additional educational supports that may be beneficial
  • Refer family to other community-based services
  • Agency liaisons to help navigate social service programs
  • Assist with crisis intervention
