Chicago Youth Centers

Founded in 1956 as a means of harvesting a next generation of socially responsible, contributing adults in Chicago's most underserved communities. "Forty-four years later, we remain committed to our founder's vision of serving Chicago's highest-need youth and communities. Through the development of research-based programming that focuses on real change and not simply motion, all CYC pro-grams are designed as seeding processes that endeavor to fully mobilize youth's willingness and capacity to create positive change through the choices they make; they can no longer delegate responsibility upward, so we begin to build moral character where our future truly resides, in our youth."
