The California Coalition for Youth (CCY) is a statewide grassroots nonprofit organization that serves disconnected youth ages 12-24 throughout the state.
Our vision is that every youth in California is connected to the services, resources, support and programs they need to have successful lives. The Coalition advocates for public policies, programs, and services that respect, empower, and protect the rights of all youth. We do this work through:
|Partnering with youth|
|Linking with youth-serving programs throughout California|
|Advocating for youth rights|
|Connecting youth to resources|
Educating communities, policymakers and stakeholders
The Coalition is made up of a statewide membership of youth, youth advocates and allies, and youth-serving non-profit organizations. The Coalition is governed by a statewide Board of Directors representing youth serving programs, youth, and other individuals interested in improving and empowering the lives of youth.
