Welcome to ACYCP

The Association for Child & Youth Care Practice, Inc. (ACYCP) is a membership organization of Child & Youth Care practitioners, service providers, and state and regional associations committed to improving the profession of child and youth care (CYC).

Join our national campaign: Youth Workers Build the Future!

Youth Workers Build the Future

There are over 73 million young people in the USA under the age of 24 (Anne E. Casey Kids Count Data), and there are approximately 2.53 million “Youth Workers” in the USA (not including teachers in the education system) who serve these young people. This campaign - Youth Workers Build the Future - highlights the critical work Youth Workers do every day to build the future but supporting young people in becoming engaged, healthy and caring adults.

Youth Workers can be found in many major service settings including early childhood education, out-of-school-time, child welfare, congregate care, mental health, transitional living, employment, runaway & homeless services, recreation, juvenile justice, community-based youth services, and developmental disabilities. This campaign brings much-deserved recognition to these Youth Workers and appreciation for what they do.
