The late Elliott Donnelley and Sidney Epstein founded the Chicago Youth Centers in 1956 when the South Side Boys Club, on Chicago's near South side, and American Boys Commonwealth on the West side were combined. CYC has served the needs of kids and teens as they grow up in Chicago's toughest neighborhoods ever since.
