The Chesapeake Youth Committee (CYC) was established by the Mayor in 1981 to improve services to youth in Chesapeake. The Committee has a membership of 17 City Council appointed residents with an interest or experience in youth and related issues. The CYC is part of a comprehensive network of systems serving youth and families in Chesapeake, and is coordinated through the Division of Community Programs. The mission of the CYC is to improve the well-being of youth and families in the Chesapeake community.
Important goals of the Committee are: to promote the coordination of services and programs among youth and family service providers to maximize the use of community resources; enhance the delivery of services and programs to youth and families by identifying gaps and duplication of services; provide a mechanism to centralize resources, disseminate information and educate families and professionals about community resources; promote and support activities to strengthen families and support the positive development of youth.
The CYC meets on the 1st Thursday of every month at the Central Library. For further information please call 757-382-2226.
