The California Collaborative for Youth Development (CCYD) is a body of participating agencies and organizations with a shared interest and investment in the development of youth throughout California. Members of the collaborative represent governmental agencies, community-based organizations, non-profits, and foundations.
CCYD members work throughout the year to advance the principles of youth development. One of their notable activities is the design and organization of the annual California Youth Development Summit. It is this coordinated effort which serves as a catalyst for bridging the gap of prevention and youth development spearheading a coordinated effort toward a unified framework for working effectively with youth across the state. The collaborative has also developed tools and resources, such as, Policymakers: A Checklist of Youth Development Principles, to help guide and support policymakers as they create, modify, support, and/or fund youth policy and programs.
