Youth Catalyst Team

A national initiative for young leaders, ages 16-24, who use their knowledge, skills, and personal understanding of systems/services to advance the youth services field.


Youth Catalyst Team

Youth Catalyst Team (YCT) members operate as paid consultants: providing training and coaching, developing tools and resources, and propelling national awareness efforts and systems change. Youth and young adult leaders are part of the team - working in authentic partnership with Youth Collaboratory to reimagine possibilities for each youth, family, agency, and the larger youth services field.
