The Watchung Borough Council established a Youth Services Commission in December, 2003.
Its purpose is to bring together community representatives in government, education, law
enforcement, recreation and interested citizens to serve as a planning and enabling agency for
the development and coordination of youth services to at-risk students in the Borough of Watchung.
The Youth Services Commission runs programs such as “Girls on the Run” and “Girls on Track”,
both programs are interactive running programs which also include life skills. Other programs
run by the Commission included “White Out Against Bullying”, the “Pursuit of Excellence”
an after school tutoring program, a “Kid Cops Camp” in conjunction with the Watchung Police
department, the “Italian Club” as well as several “Movie Nights”. All programs are funded by
available grants offered by the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders and donations from town organizations
