About Us

The Rye Youth Council is a non-profit organization that believes every child deserves the social and emotional support to become a confident and compassionate citizen.

The RYC works in partnership with the schools, parents, and the community to ensure that all students are given the guidance to develop the strength of character to become resilient and responsible members of society.


We do this by offering activities and experiences which engage youth to foster positive behavior, develop cognitive, social, and emotional skills and encourage youth to see a world beyond themselves. 


We seek to engage parents and the community at large to create positive goals and outcomes for all youth and provide safe, caring environments for youth to connect with a wide array of adult and peer mentors. 


We employ youth advocates and other staff to develop and provide programs which are responsive to youth and community needs, and are overseen by a volunteer community board.


It is our belief that together we can provide a strong foundation for all the students of Rye
