The Youth Services Division (YSD) works with community partners to provide services to area youth. YSD officers continually form partnerships, and build relationships with youth, their families and the school communities it serves.  

The Youth Services Division serves the City of Portland's approximately 200 schools in 7 school districts (not including private schools) with nearly 100,000 students.  The 7 public districts with schools in the City of Portland include the Portland Public School District, David Douglas School District, Parkrose School District, Centennial School District, Reynolds School District, Riverdale School District, and the Archdiocese of Portland.  

In addition to their duties at local schools, officers are involved in a number of events, leading the annual summer camp as well as many other activities.
