To strengthen youth and families, and to reduce the incidence of delinquency, abuse and neglect through volunteer involvement.


More than 2 billion people have smartphones today. And we check our phones on average an incredible 150 times every day.   Technology makes our lives easier in so many ways - but what is the cost of our dependence, and our children’s reliance, on screens?

LIKE reveals the true effects of technology on the brain and uncovers the impact social media can have on our lives.

The film’s mission is to educate, inform and inspire people to effectively self-regulate their screen time.

Youth Assistance made it possible for a free

online community screening.

Stay tuned for more Family Education Programs. 


Every Spring, Berkley/Huntington Woods Youth Assistance recognizes youth from the Berkley School District for their positive, volunteer contributions to their schools and communities.  Nominations are solicited mid-Winter from school faculty and administrators, local faith communities, local municipalities, and private citizens.

While we were unable to have a ceremony in April 2020 as we had planned, we honored 25 students that were nominated by teachers, administrators, and other staff.


They received a lawn sign, certificate and letter, and a surprise visit from The Youth Recognition committee.

A Big "Thank You" to Rich Melin and Plasti-Fab Inc for providing the lawn signs for us to give to each student
