2021 Priorities



Systems Approach

We will bring an intentional focus on systems-approaches into our 2021 projects and operations. Cross-sector & systems-level perspectives are crucial to the fulfillment of the CYPB purpose.

Youth Master Plan Implementation & Delivery

What is the Youth Master Plan?

A comprehensive roadmap for creating and sustaining a positive youth development-focused, results-oriented New Orleans. Visit nolayouthmasterplan.org to find the youth vision and plan.  

It is our shared opportunity to:
  • Be deliberate about the potential of our city’s youth
  • Build pathways to leverage that potential
  • Shift the way we do business at every level
How do we move to action?

Phase 2 of the Youth Master Plan will launch in February 2021 with implementation & action. CYPB will convene Action Tables to design strategic action steps and set metrics, ensuring these solutions happen.

Dismantling Adultism

Problem we are trying to solve

The absence of youth voice, leadership, and co-creation in youth-focused planning efforts for youth by CYPB and its member organizations. This absence of youth voice represents the presence of adultism.

Our response

CYPB’s Youth Advisory Board is currently building a toolkit (How to Become a Youth-Centered Organization) for CYPB and CYPB member organizations to pilot for implementation.


Attendance matters, as it informs our ability to achieve a quorum and move actions/decisions forward that impact our children and youth.

In 2020, Board attendance was at 60% with 10 members in good standing, having met their required attendance percentage. The challenge is to reach at least 80% of CYPB members meeting their required attendance percentage in 2021.
