We are excited to announce that PSE is working with Bainbridge Youth Services (BYS) as a Powerful Partner in 2019. PSE is committed to fostering long-term relationships with organizations in the communities we serve and has selected BYS as a partner in Kitsap County.

PSE is donating $10,000 to BYS and will work with the BYS Board of Directors on emergency preparedness and energy efficiency. BYS is in process of remodeling their new location next to Bainbridge High School and is working with PSE’s Energy Management Engineer Rich Perlot to make their new facility more energy efficient. The new building is expected to be operational by the end of this summer.

Bainbridge Youth Services has served Bainbridge Island and Kitsap County communities for the last 50 years. BYS is dedicated to advocating for the social and emotional health of youth and young adults by providing one-on-one counseling. BYS launched a new website, AskBYS.org, to support youth and young adults who wish to remain completely anonymous when using BYS services.
