Avondale Youth Assistance (AYA) is a non-profit community service organization committed to strengthening youth and families and reducing the incidence of juvenile delinquency, child neglect and abuse through community involvement.  This mission is accomplished through the longstanding relationship with the Avondale School District, local municipalities and the Oakland County Circuit Court-Family Division which provides a caseworker to offer counseling to children and their families in Avondale.  A board of community volunteers supports this mission by providing programs for Avondale students that include Youth Recognition, honoring student volunteerism and personal achievements; Mentors Plus, matching youngsters with a caring adult; and after-school and summer KAMP (Kids Academic Mentoring Program) providing academic support.  Camp and skill building scholarships are awarded to students experiencing financial difficulties.  Drug test kits are available to parents free of charge in an effort to keep kids on the right track.

AYA operates with the sponsorship of the Oakland County Circuit Court-Family Division, the Avondale School District, the cities of Auburn Hills, Rochester Hills, Troy and the Township of Bloomfield with principal funding supplied through the Oakland County Board of Commissioners and major funding from the other sponsors.  This continuing financial support enables AYA to provide programs and services to the community.
