ICOY and Afterschool for Children and Teens (ACT Now) have been contracted by the Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Family and Community Services, Bureau of Positive Youth Development to work collaboratively to provide technical assistance to child and youth-serving organizations throughout the state. Organizations that are interested in expanding their capacity by applying for funding from state agencies, federal, local, foundation, or corporate sources should contact us through our Youth Development Programming Capacity Building Questionnaire to receive a one-on-one consultation with ICOY and ACT Now.
