Joint Youth Commission

Serving youth in the Town of Caroline, Town of Ithaca, Villages of Cayuga Heights & Lansing

In 2014, the Town of Caroline, Town of Ithaca and the Villages of Cayuga Heights and Lansing (JYC) joined together to form the new expanded Joint Youth Commission (JYC) to offer programs year-round for youth who live in these communities.

Programs are offered after school and during school breaks and the summer. 

These programs are open to youth aged 10 and up, and will follow CDC and NYS COVID guidelines

Please note that filling out this form does not guarantee your youth a spot in programs. Group sizes are limited, and in order to give all youth an opportunity to attend, early registration may not ensure participation. You will be notified by Beth Bannister which programs your youth can attend.

Fall programs coming soon!

Fall programs typically start the 2nd or 3rd week of school. Please check back to this spot for the upcoming programs enrollment form.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
