VYDC-VT Coalition of Runaway and Homeless Youth
PROGRAM: VT Youth Development Corps members promote hope, justice, and wellbeing for all VT youth. Their service supports innovative initiatives at nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and schools that foster positive youth development and build resilience in youth, helping them avoid opioid use and other unhealthy behaviors. Website: SITE: Established in 1981, the Vermont Coalition of Runaway and Homeless Youth Program (VCRHYP) is a coalition of 10 service providers working together to guarantee the existence of a statewide safety net for runaway and homeless youth. VCRHYP is a national service delivery model that creates access to services for youth throughout the entire state rather than just those in a small number of towns, cities, or locales. Our goal is to make sure that youth have access to the support services they need to be safe and stable. To accomplish this, the Coalition works to -- ensure continued funding for crucial youth services in an uncertain economic climate; collaborate with state and local partners to align and inform services; advocate for youth needs with State and Federal policy makers; foster a learning community among member agencies to develop and disseminate best practices for youth-care work; educate our communities about the issues at-risk youth face; create opportunities for youth voices to be heard. The VYDC-VCRHYP Youth Engagement AmeriCorps member helps support the Youth Action Board (YAB), a collective of young people from around the state, aged 14-24, who have experienced homelessness or precarious housing either while living with their family or on their own. YAB youth help guide the work of VCRYHP and are decision makers around funding and planning priorities. YAB youth also are supported in their own individual and collective work to raise awareness and end youth homelessness in their communities. Office located in Montpelier, VT. Visit for more info.
