Citywide Youth Coalition (CWYC) is a network of over 500 youth-serving staff, community stakeholders and individuals in the New Haven urban region working together to build a courageous community in which all youth can succeed.
CWYC supports the youth sector and provides leadership with coalition members and partners on issues of youth voice, youth leadership and youth-led social justice.
At the end of the day, we need to see real change among the outcomes with young people in the community. The only way to achieve the transformational changes needed is to include young people and adults in co-creating the services, supports and opportunities that young people need to be successful in life.
CWYC has been organizing within the New Haven urban community since 1976, hosting monthly coalition meetings since 1986, and incorporating in 1992. All of our work is done in partnership with youth and adults in the community.
Join us at our monthly coalition meetings: the third Wednesday of every month from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at Regional Workforce Development Board, 560 Ella T. Grasso Blvd., New Haven, CT. We do not meet in July or August. Click here for details and directions. These are public meetings and everyone is welcome!
