Welcome to CYC, Celebrating 30 Years of Youth Voice!

ABOUT US

California Youth Connection (CYC) is a youth-led organization that develops leaders who empower each other and their communities to transform the foster care system through legislative, policy, and practice change.

Elevating Youth Voice and Engagement in TAY Mental Health Services

We are proud to share the third and final State of the Community report developed by our No Stigma No Barriers (NSNB) TAY mental health project. “POWER: Elevating Youth Voice and Engagement in TAY Mental Health Services” celebrates the work of the NSNB Board, CYC staff, MHSOAC, and community partners, and shares the perspectives and recommendations of the young people who have led the three-year project. 

We hope their voices will inspire the community to put youth voice at the center of analysis, planning, and oversight of California’s TAY mental health services. 

We invite our entire community to read all three reports and join us in celebrating and facilitating authentic youth engagement.
