Become a Certified Child and Youth Care Practitioner!

The Journey has been a consistent leader and advocate for youth workers to improve their individual professional competencies and gain the recognition that comes through the process of becoming certified as a practicing professional in the field.

Originally supporting the deployment of the Indiana Youth Development Credential and the work of Indiana YouthPro Association, The Journey has worked alongside other youth-serving associations and agencies to support a credential that can be valuable to the field and large and to individual youth workers.

The Journey, along with the Indiana Afterschool Network, the Marion County Commission on Youth, the Indiana Youth Institute, and the Indiana Youth Services Association is now encouraging youth workers to pursue the Child and Youth Care Credential, available through the Child and Youth Care Certification Board.

We encourage you to explore the possibilities for your career, and consider starting the application process today!

Congratulations to all Journey Fellows
who have earned the CYC Credential!
