Advocacy with the State Legislature


The Advocacy Team, along with the CYSA Lobbyist, provides members with direct links to state Legislators as well as maintaining continuous monitoring of issues key to the work of YSBs. CYSA has been successful in advocating for youth services funding, enhancement grants, and JRB funding. CYSA testifies annually on numerous bills that bolster services to youth and families. We also sponsor YSB Day at the Capitol as well as regional Legislative Meetings prior to the opening of the Legislative Session, to enable all YSBs the opportunity to meet with their Legislators to highlight the important work of YSBs.

The Advocacy Team is available to support and provide technical assistance to all YSB staff throughout the legislative process.
