Cincinnati Youth Collaborative
Information About Coronavirus
In the wake of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, there have been dozens of citizens affected, this includes school districts, restaurants and the like. The health and well-being of the entire Cincinnati Youth Collaborative community is our highest priority. We here at CYC, though impacted, remain flexible with service to our students, clients, families and stakeholders. In response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), CYC in alignment with all of our district partners, are adhering to the mandate given by Governor Mike DeWine, on Thursday, March 12, 2020, by officially working remotely. We will remain working remotely as an organization until Monday, April 6, 2020 or until further notice given by governmental officials.
As a valued Stakeholder and Partner, we feel it is imperative to initiate a dialogue to not only keep you informed, but to outline how we will continue to conduct our work and how best you can get in contact with us when necessary. If you have a specific employee that you have been in communication with, please continue with that relationship by contacting them personally. If you need to reach us, please leave a message on our main phone line at: 513.363.5201 or email us via our web-site by visiting www.cycyouth.org and click the ‘contact us’ button. As this health crisis continues to evolve, we will implement health recommendations that work in concert with all of our district partners and share updated information as it becomes available. As of this date, there are no reported cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in any of CYC partner districts. Nevertheless, we will continue to implement proactive measures to minimize any health risk to students, employees and families.
Again, your continued support is valued and appreciated and rest assured, that the health and wellness of all employees, students, families, constituents and stakeholders that we serve are of the upmost priority.

A Community Crisis
Cincinnati faces a crisis in childhood poverty. Over 44% of our city’s youth are confronted with overwhelming obstacles like incarcerated parents, abuse, and homelessness. This year alone, it is estimated that 24,000 students in Ohio will drop out of high school. These vulnerable youth face an uphill battle that can plague them throughout their entire lives. CYC students are saddled with serious obstacles that can impede their academic success and put them at tremendous risk for dropping out of high school.
A Proven Solution
CYC was founded upon a game-changing model that unites volunteers, school districts, and local businesses to create a network of support for our students. CYC empowers vulnerable children and young adults to overcome obstacles and succeed in education, career, and life.
In the 2017-18 academic year:
95% of high school students in CYC programs were promoted to the next grade
94% of senior students in CYC programs graduated on-time from high school
71% of senior students in CYC programs transitioned to college
92% of senior students in CYC programs successfully transitioned to college, job or military
