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.

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.
