Community Youth Concepts’ mission is to engage and connect Iowa students through youth development programming and to provide coaching, training, and technical assistance in best practices to youth-serving non-profits.

An Iowa where all youth have access to high-quality opportunities that prepare them for success in school, work, and life.

Founded in 2008 by Amy Ostrander Croll and Lynette Marchant, Community Youth Concepts (CYC) is a mission-driven organization based in Des Moines, Iowa. By promoting the use of positive youth development principles and best practices, CYC provides volunteer service opportunities and career-based mentoring to Iowa youth in order to improve their future success as students, professionals, and active community members.
