Mission
The mission of Citywide Youth Coalition is to build a courageous community in which all youth can succeed.

As a convener and organizer of youth serving organizations, professionals, community members, and youth, the structure of our work includes facilitating monthly coalition meetings for youth-serving providers, organizing work groups, moderating email-based discussion groups, sharing best practice information, disseminating information regarding research data, resources, and funding; expanding social media presence about positive youth activities and events, attending key community meetings to represent youth and youth sector interests, hosting community events, managing collaborations,  and organizing/facilitating capacity building training for youth and adults that work with youth.
 
Our capacity building work with youth, and youth-led groups includes training youth on Undoing Racism and Youth Organizing 101. Citywide Youth Coalition staff and Youth Advisory Board members also host political education workshops (i.e. bi-monthly community Dinner and Dialogues) to recruit, educate, and mobilize young people so that they may organize local protests and campaigns.  
 
This structure supports our vision: that the New Haven urban area hosts a true youth-serving system that effectively speaks with a unified voice when articulating youth needs and goals, fosters collaboration so that youth service providers reach all young people, and publicly acknowledges the positive value in youth voice and youth leaders, as well as the dedicated people who support their development.

Background

We have been engaging in monthly coalition meetings continuously at least since 1986; and have served as the key organizing body for the youth sector since inception in 1976.

In 1976, the Mayor and staff of the City of New Haven met with leaders of youth-serving programs in New Haven to address concerns about how youth would fare during the idle summer months and increase the availability of summer programming.   After the initial meeting, leaders galvanized additional community-based organizations and organized weekly meetings to plan summer activities, expand playgrounds, run summer camp programs and urge for more funding for youth development. 

Through on-going organizing efforts, in the 1970s and 1980s, a free school breakfast program was started as well as a summer feeding program for youth, and funding for youth-serving programs to hire school buses for summer field trips.  Securing funds for summer jobs for youth was a huge accomplishment in New Haven. CWYC disseminated funds to youth-serving organizations to community-based organizations to employ youth.

In the 1990s and 2000s, CWYC focused on coalition-building activities.  In March 1992, Citywide Youth Coalition incorporated to secure youth services funds and support coalition-building within the community around the needs of youth.  In 1993, the Youth Development Training and Resource Center was founded in partnership with The Consultation Center and CWYC. In September 1994, CWYC was designated as a 501(c)3 private nonprofit corporation. CWYC has worked to expand the capacity of youth-serving organizations with training opportunities, networking and advocacy.
 
Starting in 2010, CWYC focused its efforts specifically on building youth success.  So, the coalition began to organize around building a community which supports positive youth development, and a strategic array of services, supports, and opportunities for youth.
 
Between 2015-2016, the coalition expanded its work, to include young people at the table as partners and collaborators. CWYC staff developed its Youth 'N Coalition model with the support of 12 community high school aged youth. In 2017, CWYC implemented its Youth 'N Coalition model, providing opportunities for
capacity building and political education, while supporting youth-led organizing. Today, CWYC is expanding its work to develop and support youth organizers between the ages of 16-25 that are returning from New Haven following incarceration or adjudication
Impact

Recent Accomplishments:

  1. 2016: Organized a campaign to support Aymir Holland, a young man currently facing 61 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Their efforts starting in the Summer of 2016 helped to raise over $5,330 for legal fees, gained 729 petition signatures of those in support of moving his case to juvenile court and prompted a bail support group to pay for Aymir's bail so that he could return home to his family for the duration of his trial.
  2. 2016: Organized a Solidarity Rally and March following the Presidential election. This rally gathered over 500 youth and adults from across the state on the New Haven Green for a rally of support and resistance against hate.
  3. 2016-2017: Led 2 student walkouts for Sanctuary Schools that resulted in students being invited to conversations with community stakeholders, where they put pressure on the Board of Education to put a statement and an action plan together in the event of an ICE raid.
  4. Young people engaged in CWYC programming activities have become powerful change agents in the community through the political education and support that they have received from us. They have applied pressure to elected officials, published op eds, organized protests, created and distributed school needs assessments to their peers, and even created their own social and educational justice groups such as Fighters for Justice and New Haven Student Leaders Alliance. 

 2018 Goals:

  1. Develop partnerships with 3 New Haven Public High Schools for the purpose of providing weekly political education workshops for students to promote and encourage higher levels of civic engagement.
  2. Launch the Intervention Youth 'N Coalition program, which seeks to provide political education, leadership development, and community organizing training and opportunities to youth ages 14-25 who have been released from a correctional facility.
  3. Secure $250,000 in funds to expand staff to include two full-time lead organizers and two part-time youth organizers.
Needs
  1. Citywide Youth Coalition needs an annual income stream of $250,000/year at a minimum to maintain core staffing functions which will include the Executive Director, Intervention Lead Organizer,  Intervention Youth Organizer, Prevention Lead Organizer, and Prevention Youth Organizer. 
  2. We need members at the individual, organization, and strategic partnership level to share the coalition's mission and advocacy.  www.cwyc.org/join
  3. We need college and graduate-level student interns to expand and increase the capacity of the coalition.
  4. We need event volunteers, especially young leaders, to co-design our community events to ensure we provide powerful opportunities for young people and adults to share discussions and decision-making.
  5. We need project volunteers, who are interested in: advocacy, community building, or generating positive media and images with young people in our community.
CEO Statement
Citywide Youth Coalition is unique in New Haven, and in the State of Connecticut.  We are the longest operating network of youth-serving and supporting organizations.  When I first joined the Board of Directors in February 2015, I was extremely excited to be a part of a coalition of organizations dedicated to improving outcomes for youth. My interest in joining the organization came from their commitment to engaging in policy advocacy. When I was presented with the opportunity to lead the organization I did so under the guise that youth organizing and supporting youth led activism would be at the center of our work. 
 
Since assuming the role of Executive Director, the CWYC has evolved into more that a convener and organizer of youth serving organizations and professionals. We have become synonymous with youth voice and youth led social change. I am very proud of the work that CWYC supports and even more inspired by the commitment of youth and adults to including young people in decision-making roles and leadership opportunities at all levels.  
 
The future of our city is predicated on the success of our youth and at CWYC we believe that we have what it takes to build a courageous community where ALL youth can succeed! I hope you will join us! 
Board Chair Statement

We pride ourselves with empowering young leaders to use the power of their voices and perspectives to support the elected youth representatives on the Board of Education as well as the citywide student government council. Citywide Youth Coalition builds coalition with community based organizations to share resources and collaborate on youth-centered community outreach and support initiatives. Our monthly meetings are opportunities to fellowship with our partners and other community based organizations to disseminate information and to expand efforts to best support our youth. The Coalition trains and supports New Haven youth in organizing strategies so they can impact policies that are relevant to their social and professional development.

I have realized my calling early in life and have dedicated myself to that calling. I realized this calling by becoming involved in the CWYC, a nonprofit organization geared towards creating a safe and successful future for all youth. The CWYC has led me to become extremely involved in my community. It has taught me how to break glass ceilings; ceilings that would be there my whole life if I didn’t shatter them piece by piece. I’ve become a strategic organizer that fights for both policy change and a say in legislation. I’ve become a leader in my community who enables her fellow youth to fight, organize, and take initiative. It’s something I would love to spend my life doing.
- Cowiya Arouna, Youth Advisory Board Member

The Cwyc has been the platform that has brought me to where I am today. I wouldn't do the work I do if I wasn't guided by the amazing people at CWYC. They have showed me what true youth activism is and the power we hold.

Collaborations

Building relationships, partnerships and collaborations is central to the work and mission of CWYC. The CWYC staff serves on many community planning committees.

Currently, CWYC is building a strong network of alliances with other organizations across the state that utilize the youth organizing strategy for social change, including the Black and Brown Student Union, Hearing Youth Voices, CT Students for a Dream, People for Race and Ethnicity Studies Today (PREST), and CT-Core. Together, CWYC wishes to work with these alliances to develop campaigns and utilize statewide tactics that will result in systemic changes. 

Several organizations are seeking to connect with CWYC on a deeper level to not only support our work but also become true collaborators in partners in being agents of change in the city of New Haven and the State of Connecticut. Thus far, institutions such as Job Corps, Gateway Community College, Yale University, SCSU, and Quinnipiac University have extended invitations to CWYC to be speakers, panelists, and partners on their future projects to connect us to additional resources and possible donors.

CEO Comments
I am excited to have a Board of Directors with such a wealth of knowledge and experience. The CWYC Board of Directors is comprised of subject matter experts from various fields that include youth development, child protection, policy advocacy, education, and youth employment to name a few. Together, the BOD is a diverse group of dedicated community members committed to expanding the capacity of CWYC. The President of the Board, Seth Poole, is a New Haven native that has been involved with the CWYC since 2010. Under his vision CWYC has been a staunch supporter of youth voice and youth as decision-makers in city and state policy.
 
As we continue to recruit youth to be a part of the Board of Directors, we have been met with the special challenge of having outstanding young people that are also dedicated students. As such, we have lost three of our four youth members due to school scheduling conflicts. Moving forward, the BOD will recruit youth that can remain engaged with the Board for at least 2 years.

CEO Comments
The CWYC is currently recruiting new members to join the Board of Directors as the coalition has lost 4 members in 2017 due to scheduling conflicts and promotions. This year Board Chair Seth Poole, our most dedicated BOD member, will be passing the torch as he has served as BOD chair since 2013. CWYC changed its BOD to include 3 young people under the age of 21 in 2015. Due to college acceptance and other opportunities, the CWYC currently has one youth member (Victor Padilla) that is currently the Vice President of the Board. 2018 will be a year that CWYC recruits new BOD members including on boarding at least two members under the age of 21. The CWYC has had incredible foresight in understanding the political climate that surrounds youth services in New Haven as well as throughout the state and has taken proactive measures to include young people at this table as leaders and thought partners. We sincerely believe that only through the leadership and guidance of young people will we be able to achieve our mission of creating a courageous community where all youth can succeed and we welcome the opportunity to work in tandem with young people and the community.

CEO Comments
The CWYC is in a state of flux whereas the coalition is taking on new work (i.e. youth organizing, community capacity building) while still staying true to the work of building a courageous community where all youth can succeed. This work is taking on new meaning as more and more New Haven youth become involved with CWYC programs and events thus increasing the coalition's visibility in the community. As the work expands it creates more opportunity to secure funding and work in collaboration with other organizations and institutions dedicated to our mission.
CWYC's commitment to this work has resulted in new funding opportunities and partnership that we have leveraged into resources and financial support. CWYC seeks to get the support and buy in from the community at large in order to support the expansion of our organizational infrastructure in an effort to sustain this work for years to come.

Nurture Children & Youth

When families, schools and communities take the view that children and youth are valued and respected assets to society, they necessarily support environments that nurture youth development. Children raised to embrace positive social values, to seek self-understanding, and to value their self-worth grow to become community-minded young adults with a sense of belonging and a belief in their resiliency. See how you can help our community's children grow into tomorrow's leaders.
