The Wayne County Sheriff Youth and Senior Education Fund (WCSYSEF) was established in 1990 as a 501 (c)(3) organization to benefit the community efforts of The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office. The Fund’s mission is to assist area youth and seniors by providing them with a range of educational and safety tools to enhance their quality of life.

Without their dedicated service, thousands of senior citizens and youth would go unserviced.

To date, the Fund has raised over $700,000 and given over a half million dollars to charitable organizations that assist youth and seniors in our community. The Fund has donated to the Ronald McDonald House, COTS, Make A Wish Foundation, Making It To The Finish Line and Metro Detroit Youth Day XXIX. From lunches to summer camps for youth, the Fund also provides: Drug Awareness Education Presentations, First Aid Kits, File of Life (Medical and Emergency Information for Senior Citizens), Senior Citizen’s Safety Brochures, Handgun Safety (Trigger Lock Program), Senior Emergency Cell Phone Program and Senior Window Locks.

Youth & Senior Education Fund Golf Outing

The Wayne County Sheriff Youth and Senior Education Fund Provides a wide range of educational and safety items, as well as host and sponsor programs and events geared toward youth and seniors across Wayne County. Each year, our Community Relations Officers educate children and senior citizens through a wide variety of presentations on subjects like; emergency preparedness, home safety, scam information, internet safety, and ATV safety.

Thank you for your continued support of this great cause!
