The Community and Youth Collaborative Institute (CAYCI) seeks to improve the conditions in which youth learn and play so that all youth have the chance at a healthy, happy life.  We work towards this vision by engaging in primary research & resource development; program administration; and consultation & evaluation.  Through these efforts, we impact many of the key settings in which youth development occurs, including families, schools, youth sport & other out-of-school time programs, and communities.  As part of the College of Social Work at The Ohio State University, we also help to foster the growth of students and professionals interested in youth development, school social work, and research.
