The Abbotsford Child and Youth Committee (ACYC) is a group of community partners, including service providers and family members, that are dedicated to improving the lives of children, youth, and families in Abbotsford.

Interdependence and collaboration are our greatest strengths. By working together we are able to better meet needs of our community. We hope to spur one another on to initiate positive change and accomplish that change through team work and mutual support.

We meet every two months between September and June of each year. Next ACYC meetings are Thursday, April 16th from 1 to 3pm, and Thursday, May 21st from 1 to 3pm. All meetings are held in the 3rd floor Boardroom of the Sweeney Neighbourhood Centre (33355 Bevan Ave – beside Abbotsford Senior Secondary).

The Abbotsford CYC in conjunction with MCFD Abbotsford is offering a free training on April 15th for all child and youth service providers, parents and caregivers on care teams and collaborative practice.
