About Us


About Us

The Center for Youth and Community Development (501C3) was founded with the main purpose of being the home of Adams County’s community-driven Collaborating for Youth.  With 20 years of history, we have looked to increase services that support our community and reduce risks facing area youth and families.


Collaborating for Youth, our community coalition, is comprised of 25 partner organizations and  community members with an even broader volunteer base throughout Adams County,  Pennsylvania.

Mission Statement

Developing the positive potential of youth within safe and supportive families and communities. 


Defining Principles

In all of its work, Collaborating For Youth keeps these principles central in its operations.

  • Data-driven decision-making, with outcomes and priorities derived from analysis of multiple data sources.

  • Focus on children, youth and their families

  • Work is accomplished through partnership-based, collaborative activity.

  • Priorities are informed by the Collaborative's capacity to fulfill them, taking into account realistic expectations in regards to cost, budget, staff time, and other resources.
