Local Issues In Action Award
The Driving Change: Local Issues In Action Award recognizes chapters that have completed a Local Issue in the past year. A Local Issue is developed by CYC Members based on challenges they see in their communities for youth experiencing foster care. The chapters develop solutions to address the problem and impact local policy and practice, and then create an action plan to implement their solutions. The Driving Change: Local Issues In Action Award distinguishes the important work of CYC Members and Volunteer Supporters who are working diligently in counties around California to transform the foster care system at the local level—where youth experiencing foster care will most directly see and feel the change. Just as CYC recognizes our statewide Legislative Accomplishments, we also celebrate the Local Issue work carried out by CYC chapters across the state.
