COYN, spearheaded by New Ways to Work, is led by a steering committee composed of one individual serving as representatives of each of the member organizations that have met the bar of 12 months of active participation; have completed the COYN Annual Pledge; and which choose to take a seat on the Governance Committee.



By June 2023, COYN will have grown into a nimble, proactive, and influential statewide advocacy-intermediary network that bridges policy and practice to achieve systems change at scale. To achieve this, COYN will center youth-led change to close the gap between state level policy organizations (both advocates and policymakers), ground-level service providers (implementers), communities (recipients/beneficiaries) to create policy-to-practice-to-community linkages and feedback loops that drive statewide systems-level change.
