BOARD ON CHILDREN, YOUTH, AND FAMILIES

The Board on Children, Youth, and Families (BCYF) serves as the focal point for independent and authoritative analysis of child and family issues relevant to policy decisions. The Board brings a multidisciplinary and evidence-based perspective to bear on the development of policies and programs for children, youth, and families, drawing upon the collective knowledge and analytic tools of the behavioral, health, and social sciences. The Board also fosters the recognition that children, adolescents, and families constitute unique populations whose important differences are often not addressed in public policy and program development discussions or the organization and financing of health and human services. More information about the Board on Children, Youth, and Families is available at www.bocyf.org.
