California Coalition for Youth

The California Coalition for Youth (CCY) is a statewide grassroots nonprofit organization that serves disconnected youth ages 12-24 throughout the state.

Our mission is to improve and empower the lives of California's youth.

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:

bullet_01 Partnering with youth
bullet_02 Linking with youth-serving programs throughout California
bullet_03 Advocating for youth rights
bullet_04 Connecting youth to resources
bullet_05 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.
