About Path to Promise

Announced by County Executive Molinaro in his 2017 State of the County address, the "Path to Promise" is a multi-year effort to ensure all young people in Dutchess County – from birth through age 19 – have the assets they need to achieve their full potential as they grow into young adults. This effort includes an analysis of existing youth services, development of a universal asset framework, and implementation of action plans to build on what is working, resolve any duplication of services and close any gaps in services and supports. 

Focus Groups

During the focus groups, participants will give candid and comprehensive input by answering questions regarding what young people in Dutchess County need, what is currently working well and not as well in meeting those needs, and what should be areas of priority as the County and community work together in the coming years to make sure that youth needs are met more and more effectively. 

To participate in our focus groups please select a group that you most identify with:

Parent, Youth or Caregiver
