Partnership for Children & Youth (PCY) is dedicated to a future where all children reach their full potential through equitable access to learning opportunities. We are an advocacy and capacity-building organization championing high-quality learning opportunities for underserved youth in California, with an emphasis on afterschool, summer learning, and community schools. For over 15 years, we have inspired and helped people, organizations, and systems to leverage their existing resources and work together to educate and support children in under-resourced communities. Grounded in research and experience, we train program providers, facilitate partnerships between school districts and community-based organizations, and advocate for effective public policies.

Through our leadership of the Save Afterschool Campaign, we won a $50 million increase in state afterschool funding—the first increase in more than a decade.
Youth living in public and affordable housing served by the 300 staff members we’ve trained.
