The York Suburban Communities That Care Alliance is a non-profit community organization that supports our youth in making responsible decisions. The CTC model
is proven, research-based, and nationwide. What role does it play in the York Suburban community?
YS CTC Alliance serves the York Suburban School District, but is not a part of the district nor does it receive funds from the district. We support YSSD
students by providing additional school programs, activities, and community events. Donations from individuals and businesses are our primary funding source.
We work with the district and myriad community resources to bring initiatives that can have a positive impact on our youth. School officials; other
non-profit groups, such as mentoring organizations and wellness providers; law enforcement; local government; and community members, parents, and students come together to address
challenges our youth face and help promote effective solutions. Your support helps us empower our youth and strengthen our community!
