Friends of Madison Youth/Wilbur W Pardee Youth Center
The Wilbur W Pardee Youth Center was established by The Friends of Madison Youth as a safe, drug-free, supervised environment where Madison teens can enjoy a positive recreational experience and avoid risk-taking behavior common to adolescents. In addition to providing age-appropriate recreation for the town's young people, the Barn seeks to encourage opportunities for growth, maturity, and personal skill development through a balance of challenging activities and programs that will enhance their physical, mental, and social well-being.

Madison Youth Services was a founding member of Friends of Madison Youth and continues to provide consultation and technical assistance.
