CYC is not a new program, a new organization or a new "layer of bureaucracy." Instead, its a mechanism through which existing public and private nonprofit organizations in Deschutes County can join forces to better serve the acute need for positive, structured programs for the youth of the community.

CYC has four broad goals:
1. To expand and improve opportunities for youths to be involved in positive, structured activities;
2. To expand opportunities for training and development for the professional and volunteer staff of youth organizations;
3. To increase youth participation and volunteer involvement in youth programs; and
4. To expand the communitys resources to meet the present and future needs of youth.

At present, 51 organizations are actively involved with CYC. Representatives of these organizations meet quarterly to find ways to collaborate in offering programs for young people, to pool information and resources, to improve opportunities for training and professional growth for their staff, volunteers and board members and to develop a new tier of program providers through youth leaders, called Youth Stewards.
