CYCA’s 2018-2022 Strategic Plan

CYCA spent 2017 listening to our accredited corps, funders, project partners, and key stakeholders to affirm our values and guide our priorities through 2022

Download the Strategic PlanThe Colorado corps sector has grown and evolved to meet the needs of our communities and project partners. In parallel, the association has grown alongside our members, adjusting our service delivery to meet their changing needs. The strong, sustained growth of CYCA and our members has resulted in increased capacity to transform lives and landscapes.

CYCA emerged from our strategic planning process with a new mission statement:
The Colorado Youth Corps Association serves on behalf of conservation corps that transform lives and communities through service, personal development, and education statewide

And a new vision:
The Colorado Youth Corps Association aspires to be the leader in conservation and service and empowers corps to change lives statewide

CYCA will focus on five strategic goals through 2022:

    • Secure project work on behalf of members
    • Channel Diversity, Equity, and Inclusiveness resources to corps
    • Optimize member services and programs
    • Ensure revenues are resilient and sufficient
    • Tell the collective corps story to a broader audience

The overarching outcome of this strategic plan will be that more youth, young adults, and veterans in Colorado will experience the transformational impact of service through corps.
