Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

COYFC is in the first year of a five-year strategic plan. The overall goal for this plan is to expand our mission to engage 6,740 young people 11-19 year olds annually.

1. Invest resources into recruitment, training, and retention strategies for volunteers.

2. Increase number of program sites by 31.

3. Broaden youth participation in existing ministry sites.

4. Expand funding efforts through our development work and social enterprise efforts.

COYFC currently has most of the leadership staff and organizational capacity in place, as well as most of the systems operating to support this scaling effort. We expect to be able to acquire needed skills and leadership as we progress.

Though we are just beginning this five-year strategic plan, we are currently serving more than 3,000 youth. Our social impact strategies, family counseling center, and residential facility for sex-trafficking victims are an integral component in our work with these youth.

Data
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
