We promote vitality in our community
through youth engagement
Our programs support children's
successful journey to adulthood
As parents, we want the best education experience for our kids, who face increasing pressure to perform in an increasingly complex world. The Rye Youth Council support children, teachers and parents in bringing social and emotional life skills to children through in-school curricula.
As our children age and move through life and school, they go through transitions that require a new outlook and set of social skills, all of which can be overwhelming. RYC transition programs aim to support your children avoid social isolation and risky behaviors, allowing them to feel confident, resilient and increasingly independent as they develop life skills and flourish.
Parenting can be a challenge, and we are here to help. The Rye Youth Council facilitates expert-led educational discussions, seminars and workshops for parents to learn proven, effective strategies for nurturing connection and resilience.
NEW InSync Parent Education provides parents with insight into what their kids are learning and experiencing in and out fof school, to help support and reinforce the social and emotional learnings at home.
