Our shared commitment to youth and families.

The Council for Youth Development is a cross-sector coalition of community partners committed to the vision of building a community where all youth and families are reaching their full potential. CYD partner organizations represent a cradle to career continuum serving and advocating for residents birth to twenty-one throughout Bartholomew County.

CYD investment organizations

In 2016, five community organizations joined together to invest funding and provide leadership oversight for the Council for Youth Development. Executive leaders from each organization serve on the CYD Steering Committee to review progress and ensure administrative accountability.  


With over 180 stakeholders representing more than fifty organizations, the CYD coalition continues to grow. CYD partner involvement includes participation in monthly open meetings, professional development opportunities, and coordination of projects, programs, and initiatives that align with our mission. Essential to our work is the design and implementation of our first county-wide Youth Master Plan.
