Youth Services - Recreation Partnership Recreation Partnership logo

Recreation Partnership logo

This inter-municipal partnership allows youth to participate in recreational programs to meet new friends, learn new skills, and have positive new experiences in well-supervised appropriate activities at an affordable price at convenient times and locations.

By collaborating and pooling resources, the Partnership offers a wider and more affordable array of recreational programs than any single local government could offer on its own. The RP contracts with service providers, like the Ithaca Youth Bureau, to operate programs.
