With backbone support from the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy in partnership with National Park Service and Presidio Trust, the PYC is leading an effort to engage Bay Area youth in the park today in order to open up opportunities for tomorrow. Through coordination and development of resources for organizations invested in youth working within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) and Presidio, PYC supports youth programs in reaching new levels of scale and impact. The PYC strives to harness the collective capacity of youth-serving organizations in the park to benefit young people on their pathway from cradle to career.
What is Park Youth Exchange?
Park Youth Collaborative (PYC), a growing coalition of youth-serving organizations in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA), is creating a culture that prioritizes equitable education and recreation experiences for youth and their ongoing engagement in the park community. To support better access to programs, PYC offers Park Youth Exchange, an expanding online directory of programs in the GGNRA.
