The Center for Child and Youth Policy

The Center for Child and Youth Policy is affiliated with the Institue for Human Development at the University of California, Berkeley. CCYP was formed in 2000 to establish a community of scholars focused on the unique needs and issues of children, youth, and families in the 21st century. Led by Co-Directors Jill Duerr Berrick and Neil Gilbert, CCYP facilitates interdisciplinary discussion and scholarship dissemination, drawing on faculty from nine departments and Schools on the UC Berkeley Campus as well as members from other universities in the area. Throughout the academic year, CCYP hosts leaders in the field for presentations to stimulate creative thinking and the exchange of ideas on public policy concerns facing today’s families.
