The Community Youth Council
About the Community Youth Council
The Settlement Home for Children Community Youth Council (CYC) is a group of Austin-area sophomores and juniors who volunteer their time to support the programs and services we offer. This inspiring group of young philanthropists provide much needed hands-on support to the daily operations of The Settlement Home, an Austin nonprofit that serves children in foster care through residential programs. Members of the CYC have a variety of extracurricular interests, but come together with the common goal of service to others.
From serving a holiday dinner to their peers in foster care to helping with a booth at our annual Games Day to completing beautification projects around The Settlement Home’s campus, these bright youth are making The Settlement Home a better place one volunteer hour at a time.
