As a youth development organization, the Carmel Youth Center, provides services and leadership to meet the emerging needs of young people and their families in our community, so that all young people acquire the skills, self-confidence, and opportunity to live and work to their full potential.


It all began in 1949...

In 1949, Bing Crosby established the Carmel Youth Center (CYC) as a 501 (C)(3) in Carmel, California. Over the last 69 years the CYC has continued to work with the community to provide a safe, encouraging environment that boosts curiosity, confidence and develops life skills within Carmel Youth. The CYC continues to provide programs to meet the emerging needs of young people and their families in our community.


Our mission continues...

This fall the CYC will now be offering an array of academic, social, health, community and service programs that respond to the unmet needs of the young people we serve in our community. These services include access to a learning computer lab, STEM classes, life skills education, social and emotional skill development, mindfulness, health and fitness programs, cultural and artistic activities, and tutoring.


We are launching over 10 new programs this semester! Join now and have unlimited fun with these hands-on, high-energy, educational clubs. For just $150 a month, your child will have unlimited access to any club, a free healthy snack and full-day camps for Fall and Spring breaks. Don't worry about minimum days and Veterans Day, we have those covered too! And did we mention that you get a night off every month on us? That's right, the CYC will be having Parents Night Out on the last Friday of every month, dinner included! 

We are so excited to make a true impact on our youth by providing these new services. Click below to register for your new membership today!
