Transcript of The Cicero Youth Task Force

CYTF History
The Coalition began with the Cook County Department of Public Health and Youth in Crisis, Inc. in November 1983 and initially focused on teen pregnancy issues in Berwyn and Cicero.

Over time, the coalition shifted to address a broader youth agenda across both communities. However, given the population growth and multiple needs of each community, the Cicero Youth Task Force was created to address issues facing youth specifically in Cicero.
