The Contra Costa Youth Service Bureau was founded in 1984 by African American activists to address systemic causes of violence for Richmond youth. Our focus was serving the historically marginalized, primarily African American community of North Richmond.
CCYSB services promote mental health and wellbeing. Our program offerings include academic achievement, youth mentorship, truancy prevention, and direct response.
Since our beginnings, CCYSB has become a regional organization. It is the only African American and Latinx-led, community-based agency in Contra Costa County.
Our programs aid eligible children youth, and low-income families. Join us to help all children, youth and families have the opportunity to thrive in Richmond.
