COYN

A Network of Networks









COYN connects and unifies California’s Opportunity Youth-serving organizations, including collaborative backbones, public institutions, service providers, advocacy organizations, and others vital to achieving lasting change for young people. COYN creates a channel for information sharing that fosters a common language and narrative across the field. To achieve this COYN hosts regular calls, semi-annual in-person meetings, and creates shared messaging tools and content.
