Did you know CYC is currently partnering to evaluate the impact of youth engagement in service learning on academic outcomes? Preliminary results from CYC’s pilot group for this research shows that 73% of youth who participated in service learning had an improved GPA. Additional data expanding on these findings will be available at the end of this academic year.
During this month of “thanks” we are reminded of the village of supporters who have been a part of CYC’s journey to empower, equip, and engage youth across Iowa. To the more than 200 donors and allies of our work, we resoundingly say “Thank you!” Because of your support we are able to connect with more than 4,000 youth annually and help prepare them for ongoing success in school, work, and life.
If you would like to learn more about CYC and how you can get involved, please contact us!
Best regards and Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
