Youth & Youth–Serving Organizations


Teens have a powerful impact on their peers because when information comes from one student to another it’s more like a conversation. Research shows that kids really listen to their peers more than to adults. When we make connections, youth to youth, we can make a real change in our community.

Rye Youth Council

As a youth-serving agency, the Rye Youth Council (RYC) is a natural partner with RyeACT, supporting youth in making healthy choices. Founded over fifty years ago, RYC provides programs and services for children and teens that foster positive behaviors, encourage social-emotional growth and challenge them to see the world beyond themselves.
