Jenny Byxbee will continue to work to support Greenwich’s young people after all. After stepping own from her role at the Greenwich United way in February following many changes at that non-profit, Byxbee will run the Greenwich Youth Services Bureau under the auspices of the Town of Greenwich, which officially accepted the funds from the State of Connecticut to carry on the vital work with youth.
Jenny Byxbee’s transition into the Youth Services role for the Town begins on Wednesday, March 2. She will continue to develop and oversee the Greenwich Youth Services Bureau grant, the First Selectman’s Youth Commission, and the Juvenile Review Board.
“The Town of Greenwich, especially the youth of Greenwich, is most fortunate that we have had Jenny Byxbee as our Youth Services point person,” Greenwich Police Chief Heavy said. “For over ten years she has tackled issues facing kids and their parents, ranging from child care to parent advocacy, and from fostering positive teen activities to addressing youth at risk.”
“Jenny puts her heart and soul into all that she does in support of our community’s youth,” Heavey continued. “The Greenwich Police Department looks forward to the future with a new service model that will deliver those same great results.”
“One of Mrs Byxbee’s best qualities, if you get to know her, is that she is a kid a heart, and she believes with us that we as young people can make a difference and with her we do,” said Alex Schnur Vice Chair, First Selectman’s Youth Commission. “Now thanks to the town will continue too.”
More good news for Byxbee! As a result of an introduction three years ago to two dynamic women within the community – Debra McLaughlin and Mairead Finn –the trio established Byxbee Finn & McLaughlin, LLC, a full-service fundraising and project management firm.
The company writes persuasive arguments for grant proposals, suggests entities that can donate to a specific organization, and executes fundraising events that are best reflective of an organization’s mission.
Byxbee Finn & McLaughlin, LLC is the value added component to every organization. With newly realized funds and grants for an organization, Byxbee Finn & McLaughlin, LLC hopes to manage and develop successful youth and community programs that are tailored to enable each client to find their unique path to success.
Together Byxbee, Finn and McLaughlin have pooled their talents and resources to create a new partnership on the forefront of what is next for youth and community services.
