Ways to Get Involved

  1. Become a Youth Member: You must be between the ages of 14-24, and have a history with the foster care system/out of home placement (whether 1 day or your whole life).
  2. Become an Adult Supporter: Our adult supporters are individuals over the age of 18, that believe strongly in youth empowerment and that our members are the experts of the foster care system.
  3. Become an Event Volunteer: We can not do what we do without volunteers. Our event volunteers provide support for our chapter, conference and/or fundraising events.
  4. Work or Intern at CYC: The majority of the staff at CYC are former foster youth. We strongly encourage current and former foster youth to apply for employment and interships at CYC.
  5. Get Involved with our Board: Our Board is constantly seeking out individuals who are willing and able to share their expertise and skills with our organization. They are seeking both board members and Board Committee volunteers.
