Rye Youth Council strengthens families by educating parents and caregivers on issues affecting today's youth, and providing strategies to enhance connections with young people. Our programs address ways to identify and resolve common parenting challenges, and our approach is always through a lens of social and emotional learning.
Rye Youth Council supports children, teachers and parents in teaching social and emotional life skills, in and out of the classroom. Our RYC Youth Educator teaches an in-class Social and Emotional Learning curriculum to every 3rd and 4th grader in the Rye City School District, and DBT-Step A to the District's 6th graders.

Events in recent months have changed our day-to-day lives in many ways that present challenges for families with children of all ages. The Challenging in Parenting Times series is designed to provide information, strategies and resources for parents as we navigate these unprecedented times, and work together to protect the mental, emotional, and behavioral health of youth in our community.
RYC Parent Support Line offers referrals to local professionals
Rye Youth Council offers a parent support line to assist parents in our community during this challenging time. The parent support line connects parents seeking emotional support to local mental health clinicians.
The support line will be accessible M-F, 10am - 4pm.

When we devote time to self-improvement, we are actually giving ourselves a gift. The point is not to be perfect, or to overachieve, or to exhaust oneself. These sorts of personal projects have two benefits. . .
Although disagreements are inevitable, resulting arguments might be preventable if we can handle the disagreement in a constructive way.
