Mission Statement

The Commission on Children and Youth promotes the well-being of Montgomery County’s children, youth and families so that all young people may realize their full potential and become contributing, productive adults. The Commission advances its mission by: (1) identifying the needs of young people and their families, and the groups and agencies that serve them; (2) informing and advising the County Executive, the County Council, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Board of Education (BOE) and the community at large; (3) recommending policies, programs, funding and legislative priorities; and (4) affirming the needs, aspirations and achievements of all the County’s young people.

The Montgomery County Commission on Children and Youth (CCY) is a committed volunteer group of 27 members comprised of youth, parents, and child-serving professionals. It is charged with advising the County Executive and County Council, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Board of Education on the development of coordinated community and government policies, programs and services which support children, youth and families. It also works to provide effective public information on children’s programs and services in the County.
