California Youth Connection (CYC) was founded in 1988 by foster youth and adult supporters. It has evolved into a vibrant statewide youth leadership, advocacy, and training organization with county-based chapters throughout California, four satellite offices, and a budget close to $3 million. CYC empowers and educates current and former foster youth, providing them with leadership and advocacy opportunities to be the lead agents of change for system improvements throughout the state through legislative, policy, and practice change.
We believe outstanding people are the key to our success. As an equal opportunity employer, we recruit individuals without regard to race, national origin, religion, gender (including gender identity), sexual orientation, prior conviction, arrest history, disability, marital status, veteran status, or age.
Y.O.U.T.H. Training Project (YTP) is a branded project of CYC and was founded in 2000. YTP is a unique collaboration between current and former foster youth (ages 16-24), child welfare professionals, and youth-serving organizations. We empower transition-age foster youth, who are experts in navigating the foster care system, to develop and deliver best-practice training for professionals who support transition-age youth.
Since its inception in 2000, YTP has trained, employed, and supported more than 175 youth, who have in turn trained over 7,000 child welfare professionals on the needs of foster youth and the practices that best support transition-age youth. Many of our youth have multi-year relationships with YTP, during which they grow into exceptional trainers, advocates, and leaders—and find rewards they could not have imagined.
The Training Coordinator plans and executes child welfare training throughout California by coordinating and maintaining statewide connections in the child welfare community and supporting the professional development of Youth Trainers (current and former foster youth who are responsible for facilitating child welfare training.) Furthermore, the Training Coordinator works collaboratively with staff and members to develop curricula for semi-annual statewide conferences.
