Pacific County Youth Alliance
When the need to help youth succeed arose in Pacific County the community responded by doing what it does best; they came together and created a solution. The Pacific County Youth Alliance (PCYA) was founded in 2013 with the help of funding from the Medina and Ben B. Cheney Foundations and with space provided by Willapa Behavioral Health. PCYA was created to support all youth-serving organizations in Pacific County in achieving their common goal of strengthening youth through the power of community. PCYA, in coordination with the Regional Alliance for Youth (RALLY), PCYA Advisory Board, and youth-serving agency partners, is developing a strategic plan to identify resources, gaps, and strategies to increase capacity within organizations and to support partnerships across Pacific County. PCYA is currently made up of a board of volunteers, a coordinator, and over 40 youth-serving organizations!
