Our Philosophy

Families, communities, and programs thrive when all youth live, learn, work, and play in safe, supportive, and opportunity-rich environments. Community!Youth Concepts (CYC) believes each youth must be treated individually and encouraged to find his or her own voice and opportunities backed by best practices to support youth in discovering their unique passion. CYC believes youth who are engaged as part of the community through high-quality opportunities become the healthy, well-rounded, and community-invested adults of tomorrow.

At CYC, we help youth discover their passions and connect them with organizations where they can use their passions on a long-term basis. Connecting youth with high-quality programs is essential. Our training and technical assistance work addresses the needs of organizations in attaining and maintaining the research-based high-quality standards the community expects. We offer the research-based assessment, training, and technical assistance to help guide agencies with their continuous program improvement processes.
