National Center for Youth Issues
National Center for Youth Issues provides educational resources, training, and support programs to foster the healthy social, emotional, and physical development of children and youth. Since our founding in 1981, NCYI has established a reputation as one of the country’s leading providers of teaching materials and training for counseling and student-support professionals. NCYI helps meet the immediate needs of students throughout the nation by ensuring those who mentor them are well prepared to respond across the developmental spectrum.
To date, NCYI has placed materials in and provided training to over 40,000 schools in all 50 states. Last year alone, NCYI placed more than 60,000 counseling resources in schools throughout the country. The range of issues addressed has grown substantially, encompassing subjects ranging from bullying and violence prevention, to drug and alcohol abuse, depression, suicide, and anxiety, as well as positive character/life-skills development and social/emotional learning. As the role of student support professionals continues to expand, NCYI has broadened the range of topics, offering resources to address such challenges as: Internet safety, overcoming learning differences, childhood obesity, social and emotional learning, self-injury, ADHD, bi-polar and autism spectrum disorders.
NCYI also hosts local, regional, and statewide “Healthy Choices for Youth” educator training events (with over 20,000 educators trained), and provides conference management services to help school districts, professional educator associations, and government agencies as they work to improve life outcomes for children and youth.
