Volunteering for the California Coalition For Youth's Crisis Line has been one of the best volunteer experiences I have ever had! The staff is very genuine, and the work that we do here is truly amazing. We truly do provide an open ear for youths in crisis when they feel they have nowhere else to turn to. I know in this role I have greatly impacted many youths lives! CCY will always hold a very special place in my heart!
CCY is an important player in the movement to fight youth homelessness in California. The not only have an advocacy and policy initiative, but they operate the California Youth Crisis Line, which yearly serves thousands of young people and those who care about them.
CCY is a statewide leader on issues affecting disconnected, runaway and homeless youth in California and has been a strong advocate on their behalf. In addition CCY operates the CA Youth Crisis Line which is an amazing resource for youth and young adults in need.
CCY has been a valuable resource for youth and RHY programs. From the 24-hour Crisis Line (which we publicize with our program information) to the youth led and driven Advisory Board to the annual legislative conference in Sacramento, the programs empower youth and through the annual conference, provide legislators with input from the youth many bills are designed to serve.
CCY does amazing advoacy work on behalf of young people in California and the California Youth Crisis Line is a valuable resource that we need to protect and promote.
The only agency giving voice to disconnected youth in California. They provide a valuable resource and have been influential in helping the state legislature understand these youth and how their decisions impact the youth.
CCY has been operating the California Youth Crisis Line since the mid-80's. It is the only 24-hour hotline for California's youth and families in crisis. They currently handle over 20,000 calls a year and are working to expand their connections with youth who need help by adding on-line chat and texting to their services.
